Ill-pointed firework leads to house fire

In case you missed this chart and this post, fireworks are banned in much of the Inland Northwest.

Some people shooting them off in the park at Broadway Avenue and Chestnut Street apparently didn't get the memo.

The suspects shot an ill-pointed Roman candle from the park to a house across the street, said Lisa Jones, the city's fire marshal. The firework hit a bush in the front yard, which was engulfed in flames. By the time firefighters arrived, the flames had spread to the front porch and into the house.

Victim in fatal fire knew tragedy well

A woman and her dogs died in a fire that ripped through her northeast Spokane home Friday. 

Inez L. Williams, 67, was described by friends and family as an animal lover who had lived at 4128 E. Princeton Ave. for decades.

Fire officials are investigating how the fire at the double-wide trailer began, but the woman’s niece, Kim Staggs, said her aunt had large oxygen tanks in the home and often smoked in bed.

Read the rest of my story here. Williams’ son, Terry Allen Palm, and his girlfriend, Angela Walsh went missing in 2002 in a case that remains unsolved. Read more here.
