Spokane Valley Fire Department crews responded to the fourth fire to break out in a vacant house at 806 N. Park Road Wednesday night just after 8:30 p.m. The first crews on the scene found 30-foot high flames shooting out of the roof and heavy fire in the front and the back of the house, said Assistant Fire Marshall Bill Clifford in a press release.
It appears to be an arson fire, Clifford said. The home has been vacant for several years and fire crews have responded to three other fires there. The home is now a total loss, he said. Anyone with information on how the fire started is asked to call the department at 928-1700. Photo courtesy the Spokane Valley Fire Department.
Liberty Avenue will be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday between Park Road and Edgerton Road for utility work. Drivers will detour around the area, plan for a traffic slowdown if you need to drive in that area.

If you live or work in the vicinity of Park Road between Indiana and Broadway, head over to an open house Monday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Woodard Elementary, 7401 E. Mission. The meeting will be hosted by the city of Spokane Valley's Public Works Department, which is planning to reconstruct Park Road.
Current plans call for the intersections of Park/Broadway and Park/Mission to be redone in concrete, add a right turn lane from westbound Broadway to northbound Park and restripe Park to a single lane in each direction with a center turn lane and bike lanes. Sidewalk and stormwater improvements will also be a part of the project.
The open house is being held to get public input on the city's plans. Funding is not yet available and a timeline for construction has not been set.
