Garage fire caused by gas fumes igniting

A Spokane Valley man learned the hard way this afternoon that gasoline fumes and open flames don’t mix. The man was apparently working on his snowmobile when gas fumes ignited and his garage burned, according to a press release from assistant fire marshal Bill Clifford of Spokane Valley Fire

Seven fire trucks responded to the location at 3102 N. Lily Road just after noon. When firefighters arrived the garage was aflame and a neighbor’s garage was also beginning to burn. No one was injured in the fire. The garage and its contents were a total loss. The neighbor’s garage sustained $1,000 in damage. The photo is courtesy of Spokane Valley Fire.
