It looks like Mako the arson dog had a good time last night at the annual Sunrise Elementary science fair. Spokane Valley Fire Department fire investigator Rick Freier brought his canine partner to the fair for students to meet and it looks like some of the kids were happy to pet him and learn a little about how he works. After a few months on the job Mako has settled in enough to begin making the rounds of local schools. If you are interested in having Freier and Mako visit your school or event to talk about fire safety, call the fire department at 928-1700.
