East Farms business burns

The Spokane Valley Fire Department put out a fire at Premier Lumber on Kildea just off Starr Road in the wee hours of the morning today. A Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy called in the fire at 12:10 a.m. and when firefighters arrived flames were coming from a sawdust hopper and an enclosed area that housed a large truck, according to a press release from assistant fire marshal Bill Clifford.

The truck was burned and parts of the building were also damaged, though an official estimate of damages isn't available yet. It is thought that the fire started in the truck's engine compartment and may have been sparked by an engine block heater, Clifford said.
