Spokane Valley

Propane truck on fire

A caller has reported that a propane truck is on fire in the area of  Fruithill Road and Upriver Drive. The first Spokane Valley Fire Department crew on the scene reports the cab of the truck is "fully involved." It sounds like Sheriff's Deputies are planning to shut down traffic in the area. One deputy told the dispatcher "This thing looks like it's burning down to the ground."

4:05 p.m. update: Firefighters report the flames are out, but it sounds like it's going to take time to clean up the mess.

4:17 p.m. update: Fruithill Road is completely shut down north of Upriver, so avoid that area for a bit.

5:34 p.m. update: The road is now open.
