Spokane Fire determines arsonist to blame for Geno’s fire

By From staff reports

An arsonist is to blame for a three-alarm fire that damaged Geno’s restaurant and a nearby low-income apartment complex last weekend.

The Spokane Fire Department determined that a fire at 907 E. Sinto Ave. was intentionally set, according to a press release. A person of interest has been identified but no arrests have been made.

The fire displaced at least 14 residents at the Sinto Apartments, which are SNAP operated, and damaged the kitchen of Geno’s. The fire did about $100,000 in damage.

No one was injured in the blaze.
