Fire surrounds Airway Heights home

By The Spokesman-Review

Crews from multiple fire departments found a home in Airway Heights completely surrounded by flames when they arrived on scene early Wednesday evening.

No one was inside the home at 1617 S. Lyons Road when firefighters arrived, said Spokane County Fire District 10 Battalion Chief Chad Childears. The exterior of the home was blackened in some areas, but the fire did not spread inside. “It did hit the structure a little bit, but we knocked it out,” Childears said.

Fire crews from Airway Heights, Medical Lake and Fairchild Air Force base also responded to help put out the grass and brush fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation, Childears said.
