Spokane Valley firefighters responded to a mobile home fire Friday afternoon as neighbors tried to extinguish it with garden hoses.
Smoke and flames were extending from the rear of the mobile home when firefighters responded to the 3400 block of North Donwood Street, according to a news release. Crews arrived seven minutes after the first 911 call and a total of five engines and two ladder trucks responded.
Firefighters searched the residence and were assured the homeowners weren’t there, but crews later learned of a pet and went back inside to find a small dog underneath a bed, according to a news release. The dog died despite medical attention.
No one reported injuries due to the fire, according to a news release. The damage to the home was extensive and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
