Four residents displaced by Logan neighborhood fire

From staff reports

A fire that started in a carport behind two duplexes in the Logan neighborhood in north Spokane knocked out power to a city block and left a dog dead of smoke inhalation, the Spokane Fire Department said.

Firefighters were called to the 2500 block of North Denver Street shortly before 10 p.m. Monday, according to a news release. Flames had already devoured a carport and a vehicle, and was spreading to two duplexes nearby. Power lines had also fallen as a result of the heat.

Neighbors initially reported people were inside the burning buildings, but firefighters only found one victim - a dog that had died of smoke inhalation. The blaze was extinguished in 20 minutes and caused an estimated $75,000 in damage. The duplex unit sustained heavy smoke and water damage, and the vehicle and carport were destroyed.

The Red Cross is helping relocate four residents displaced by the fire. Investigators are working to determine the fire’s cause.
