Nick Peraud consoles his fiancee, Skye Foster, as Spokane firefighters battle a blaze that consumed their residence on the 1200 block of East Nora Avenue in Spokane on Wednesday.

Three firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion and another burned his arm while fighting the blaze on Nora Avenue. Those who lived in the home were all accounted for and were not injured, authorities said. Firefighters sprayed water on the roofs of neighboring houses to protect them, but the heat damaged two adjacent homes.
