Spokane firefighters extinguished a small house fire Monday on the South Hill.
Multiple fire engines responded to the home at 423 W. 24th Ave. at about 11:45 a.m., where they found flames confined to the home’s attic, said Battalion Chief Darin Neiwert.
The fire started because three air conditioners overheated some electrical wiring that ignited insulation in the attic, according to a news release from the Spokane Fire Department.
Nobody was home at the time, firefighters said.
The flames were quickly extinguished within minutes, however, firefighters had to navigate working around a possibly hazardous material in the attic. No one was hurt.
