Flames damage South Hill home

Fire badly damaged a South Hill home Thursday, and killed the family’s cat. Spokane Fire Department firefighters responded to the home at 2220 S. Grand Blvd., about 2:30 p.m., with smoke billowing from the two-story home. Crews were able to contain the fire in about 25 minutes. The fire, mostly contained to the first-floor living room and an upstairs bedroom, caused more than $100,000 worth of damage, fire officials said. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
