Over $300,000 in damages estimated to South Hill home destroyed in early-morning house fire

A vacant home was heavily damaged in an early-morning house fire on Spokane’s South Hill Thursday.

The house, 425 E. 14th Ave., was apparently empty when Spokane firefighters were called to the blaze at 2:20 a.m., according to a fire department news release. Firefighters were able to stop the fire from spreading to nearby structures.

The cost in damages is estimated to be over $300,000. A cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
