One dead in Mead mobile home fire

UPDATED: Thu., Feb. 2, 2012

By From staff reports

A woman died early Thursday after ashes dumped in an outdoor trash can likely sparked a fire in her Mead mobile home.

Two other adults and two children escaped the fire that started around 5 a.m. at Shenandoah Forest mobile home park, said Howard Johnson, division chief for Spokane County Fire District 4. A neighbor called 911.

The Red Cross is providing temporary housing, food and clothes for the other people who lived in the home, said Megan Snow, a spokeswoman.

The people who escaped the fire were the homeowner’s caregiver, fiancee, the caregiver’s daughter and the homeowner’s granddaughter. Both children were under age 10, Johnson said.

The homeowner’s name has not been released.

Some of the other fire victims were treated for smoke inhalation, Johnson said. The fire appears to have spread from the outdoor trash can to the mobile home and a nearby shed, Johnson said. Both were destroyed.

About 25 firefighters from Districts 4 and 9 responded.
