They were told a woman and a dog were still in the building by several other residents who had fled. Crews found the unidentified woman, who was taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center for treatment of smoke inhalation.

The woman’s dog died in the apartment, fire officials said.

About seven people who lived in the building were given assistance by the Spokane Red Cross.
