Children playing with matches sparked a blaze at a north Spokane apartment complex Sunday, according to the Spokane Fire Department.

The fire started in a shrub near a main-floor patio and spread up to the third floor, scorching the vinyl siding of the building at 8821 N. Hill N Dale St.

Firefighters contained the blaze as it was spreading into the attic, according to the Fire Department.

Twenty-one firefighters responded; none was injured.

Crews were on the scene for about an hour and a half.

The building is owned by Spokane Forest Park Apartment, LLC.
