Firefighters stop blaze on Upriver Drive

UPDATED: Fri., Nov. 4, 2011, 4 p.m.

Spokane Valley firefighters were called to a house fire around 1:40 p.m. on Upriver Drive east of Argonne Road.

The fire at 10314 E. Upriver forced closure of the eastbound lane of Upriver.

The fire began in the basement, so firefighters broke out a basement window and used the opening to douse the blaze, said Capt. Pat Schaffer in a press release this afternoon.

Once that was accomplished, they then entered the home and finished the job of putting out the fire.

Damage was estimated at $40,000. No injuries were reported. The cause was under investigation.
