Spokane Valley Fire Department crews responded to an attic fire yesterday afternoon at the Village Apartments, 9717 E. Sixth. A Spokane Valley police officer spotted the fire and warned residents, according to a fire department press release.

The fire started on a balcony on the top floor and spread up the side of the building and into the attic, the press release said. Damage was largely confined to the attic and outside of the building, but some top floor apartments were damaged by smoke. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The Red Cross is assisting the residents of the top floor apartments. Photos are courtesy of the Spokane Valley Fire Department.

A teenage boy noticed smoke in his home in the 15100 block of East Sixth in Spokane Valley Monday and called the Spokane Valley Fire Department just before 1 p.m. A fire was located in the attic and it took firefighters 20 minutes to rip holes in the roof and the walls to put out the flames, according to a fire department press release. It appears that the fire started near the fireplace and damages could top $15,000. The teen was able to get out of the house safety and there were no injuries.
