Spokane Valley firefighters respond to separate fires at Oxford Suites, manufactured home Sunday night

UPDATED: Mon., Sept. 23, 2019

More than 40 Spokane Valley Fire Department vehicles and a Spokane County Fire District 9 engine were dispatched between two fires at a hotel and a manufactured home on Sunday night.

Firefighters responded to the Oxford Suites on Indiana Avenue around 9 p.m. for a report of smoke coming from a commercial kitchen, according to a news release.

Smoke was filling hallways on the first and second floor of the hotel and the hotel was already evacuated when crews arrived.

Firefighters found a fire in the wall behind a commercial stove. Crews contained the fire to that wall and smoke damage to the first and second floors.

No firefighters or hotel occupants were injured. The cause of the fire is under investigation by an insurance company.

Crews responded around 10 p.m. to reports of smoke and flames coming from a manufactured home off East Jackson Avenue.

One side of the home was burning when firefighters arrived, according to a news release. The fire started in a carport attached to the house.

Firefighters cut holes in parts of the home to access the interior of the home and extinguish the fire. A wall between the attic and the interior of the house kept the fire from spreading to the entire home.

No residents or firefighters were injured.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department is investigating the cause of the fire and will inspect the scope of the damage to the home today, said spokesperson Julie Happy.
