Firefighters battle two small blazes

Both blazes contained, under investigation

Firefighters battled two fires Monday, including a blaze at Liberty Park near the Ben Burr Trial. Spokane Fire Battalion Chief Bob Green said crews were called to the scene about 3:50 p.m. He said today’s fire at Liberty Park, like another on Sunday, is suspicious. Firefighters also contained a brush fire northeast of Pines and Indiana in a natural area near a water tower. Crews were called to the scene, just north of the Granite Pointe Apartments at 12707 E. Mansfield, about 3 p.m. on a report of a 100-foot by 100-foot fire, said Spokane Valley Fire Captain Paul Hatten. The blaze started to spread into trees and grew before it was doused, Hatten said. He said he did not yet know the size of the area burned. Cause of the fire is under investigation. People have started many fires in the area in the past few years. Hatten said the fire never got close enough to threaten nearby apartments.
