Fire burns store, closes 395 in Colville

Sat., Feb. 16, 2013, 9:56 p.m.

A fire at a furniture store in downtown Colville led to the closure of U.S. Highway 395 Saturday night.

The fire at Saundra’s Furniture, 279 S. Main St., necessitated the highway closure between First Avenue and Birch Avenue just after 8 p.m., a news release from the Washington State Patrol said. Traffic on the highway was being detoured.

Multiple photos posted to social media sites Saturday night showed the building engulfed in flames. It was unclear Saturday night when the blaze would be contained or how long the highway would be closed.
