Residents, pets safe after fire

From staff reports

Firefighters rescued a dog and two cats from a fire at 5720 N. G St. in Spokane on Tuesday morning.

The three people in the home were able to escape, said Spokane Fire Assistant Chief Brian Schaeffer. The blaze appeared to have started in the home’s basement, officials said.

The house suffered extensive damage, but it was not destroyed. The residents – an adult and two children – will stay with family members, Schaeffer said.

The cause of the fire, which was extinguished about 9:15 a.m., has not been determined, officials said.
