“Raging” house fire

Get Adobe Flash player

Spokane Valley Fire Department assistant fire marshal Bill Clifford describes yesterday's house fire at Welleley and Moore as “raging.” When firefighters arrived there were smoke and flames coming out the front door, the living room window and the back of the house. The sounds of the crackling flames alerted one of the occupants, who also got his brother and newphew out of the burning home, Clifford said. The only smoke detector in the home was on the lower level and the fire started on the main floor. The two adults suffered from smoke inhalation and received minor burns.

The cause of the fire hasn't yet been determined. Damage to the house is estimated to be at least $200,000. The photos above are courtesy of the Spokane Valley Fire Department.

Home damaged by fire

Here's a look at the house at Wellesley and Moore in Spokane Valley that was damaged by fire this morning. Two adults and a child who were in the home at the time were able to escape with minor burns. More information will be forthcoming once the fire investigator has completed his work.

Monday morning hiccups

There are a few traffic issues lurking out there on this chilly and damp Monday morning. A semi has reportedly lost its trailer on East Montgomery near where it crosses the railroad tracks east of Argonne. It is blocking at least part of the roadway, so a detour may be in order.

Also, it looks like Spokane Valley Fire Department crews are still on the scene of a house fire at Wellesley and Moore near East Valley High School. The fire was reported about an hour ago and it sounds like traffic is being routed around the area.
