Woman found dead in motel room

A woman was found dead in a smoke-filled motel room on East Sprague Avenue in Spokane on Tuesday morning. Firefighters arrived at the Bel-Air 7 Motel, 1303 E. Sprague Ave., about 9 a.m. and light smoke coming from the front of the two-story brick and concrete motel. Crews located the fire in a first-floor room on the east end of the building, where they found heavy smoke and extinguished a blaze, then found a woman on the floor, according to the Spokane Fire Department. Paramedics tried to revive the woman, who was transported to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and pronounced dead. The cause of the fire is under investigation, said Assistant Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer. None of the 28 crew members was injured. The woman’s name has not been released.
