A woman was hospitalized with minor burns and a dog died after an RV caught fire in Spokane Valley on Friday.
The fire, which occurred at about 8 a.m., started when a resident attempted to light a cigarette, igniting the propane gas leaking from a hose attached to a nearby tank, according to the Spokane Valley Fire Department.
The RV was parked near the 4200 block of North Best Road near Trent Ave, where it was being used as a residence.
In addition to the woman, two men were inside.
Two people exited through a fire escape window, while the third person broke a different window to escape. The dog, a Great Dane, did not survive.
The initial investigation into the fire was conducted by investigator Dustin Thurman.
