Deadlines have kept me from blogging much today, but I did get some pictures from the Spokane Valley Fire Department from a fire at the Manor Vale Apartments this morning at 10101 E. Main. The fire was called in at about 9:30 a.m. and firefighters found heavy smoke and flames when they arrived, according to assistant fire marshal Bill Clifford.
Two apartments were heavily damaged and residents in two adjoining apartments may be allowed back inside once the air quality improves, Clifford said. No one was injured and crews managed to save a cat. The fire was likely caused by combustible items placed too close to a heater, Clifford said. Photo courtesy of the Spokane Valley Fire Department.
