Fund set up for firefighter’s family

A fund has been set up to benefit Pete and Rachelle Flatt, whose home was significantly damaged in a fire Tuesday night in Spokane Valley’s Ponderosa neighborhood. Pete Flatt is a firefighter with District 8 and was on duty across town when the fire broke out. Flatt has called his wife a hero after she saved their three children from the burning home. The International Association of Firefighters Local 3711 has set up a fund at Spokane Teachers Credit Union. People can make donations at any STCU branch by mentioning the Flatt Fire Family Fund. Donations of clothing or toys for their children can be dropped off at District 8’s Station 84 at 4410 S. Bates Road. The couple has a 6-year-old boy, a 3-year-old girl and a 15-month-old girl.
