Several people called 911 this morning shortly after 4 a.m. to report a mobile home on fire in the 4900 block of East Fourth Ave. One of the calls was from the 79-year-old resident, who was sleeping on his couch and awoke because of the heat of the fire, said Spokane Valley Fire Department assistant fire marshal Bill Clifford. He tried to put out the fire without success and went to a neighbor's to call for help.

About 25 firefighters responded, but the mobile home was in flames and couldn't be saved. The damage is so extensive that the cause of the fire is undetermined, Clifford said. The mobile home was insured and the man is being assisted by Red Cross. He suffered minor smoke inhalation but was otherwise uninjured.
