Arson fire burns pair of homes in Spokane

The Spokesman-Review

Two house fires late Sunday were intentionally set, Spokane fire officials announced Monday.

A fire at 407 E. Crown Ave. broke out just minutes after a fire a few blocks away at 1507 E. Everett Ave.

The first fire began at a shed and spread to the Everett Avenue home before fire crews knocked it down about 20 minutes later. A resident fled the home safely and was assisted by the Red Cross. The fire caused significant damage to the home.

Investigators say both fires were caused by humans.

Anyone with information is asked to call the fire department’s tip line at (509) 344-3473 (FIRE).
