Several apartments destroyed by fire in North Spokane

A two-alarm fire destroyed several apartments in North Spokane Friday afternoon, leaving more than a dozen people without a place to stay.

The Spokane Fire Department was called to the Cedar Creek Village Apartments at 8424 N. Nevada just before 3 p.m. It’s believed the fire started on the balcony of a second-story unit and spread up the exterior of the building to the third floor and the roof, said Assistant Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer.

There was major damage to two apartments on the third floor and one on the second floor, Schaeffer said. Four other apartments were also damaged. Twelve adults and one child were displaced by the fire, he said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
