Update on Industrial Park fire

Get Adobe Flash player

There is some new information available on the fire at Spur Industries in the Spokane Valley Industrial Park on Tuesday. According to a press relase from Spokane Valley Fire Department Capt. Pat Schaffer, it was a metal shaving collection bag that was on fire on the exterior of the building. Crews determined that the metal shavings were not flammable and were not on fire. A firefighter used a forklift to remove the bag and crews doused the flames with foam, Schaffer said. The cause is under investigation and damage is estimated at $10,000.

Fire in Industrial Park

A fire is being reported in a business at Euclid and Flora in the Spokane Valley Industrial Park. The initial call reported fire in a sawdust hopper.  

11:12 a.m. update: The business is Spur Industries. According to its web site it is involved in metal “welding, machining or fabrication.” Firefighters report the fire is in a hopper filled with metal shavings.

Weight restrictions on Sullivan bridge

The City of Spokane Valley sent out a press release shortly before 5 p.m. yesterday announcing new weight restrictions on the southbound lanes of the Sullivan Road Bridge. There are actually two bridges there and the one that carries southbound traffic is the oldest and in poor condition. Cracks and other problems have been seen and a new bridge is not likely soon.

Reporter John Craig put together a brief for today's paper and I will be following up with more details in Saturday's Valley Voice. Standard semis are limted to 36 tons and a “pup truck” of two trailers (usually of gravel) separated by a long tow bar is limted to 45.5 tons. Click here for a complete list of the various styles of trucks and their weight limits.
