Two teens wanted in connection with four intentionally set fires

SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane County firefighters responded to the scene of four different fires throughout the morning hours of Friday. Fire officials say all four fires were set intentionally and were probably set by the same two people.

The first fire was set at 38th and Grand in Spokane's South Hill in a Port-o-Potty. Fire officials say that was sometime just after midnight. Just after that, another fire broke out at 39th and Hatch, just a few blocks away. Then, minutes later a third fire broke out just across the street. Right now it's not clear what was set on fire in the second and third incidents.

In the fourth fire, at 37th and Pittsburg in Spokane's South Hill, the suspects set fire to the roof of a garage attached to a home. Crews showed up and got the fire quickly out, but remained on scene because a witness said she'd seen the two people that set it.

According to a witness, she saw two suspects on the roof of a home in that area. Moments later, she saw some flames and heavy smoke. The two suspects, both juvenile males, were seen running from the scene. Along with the four fires set, other victims have reported rocks thrown through their windows and cars vandalized.

Fire crews say because all four fires were within a ten-block radius, plus all the vandalism throughout the morning, they are looking for two male suspects. All the activity took place from midnight until 3:30 Friday morning. Crews say if you know anything, all 911

    Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Wednesday, July 18 2018 1:48 PM EDT2018-07-18 17:48:19 GMT

    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - We've had a lot of questions about what firefighters  are talking about when they say that the fire is 100 percent lined, but that the Upriver-Beacon fire is 0% contained. Here's the gist, according to firefighters: Containment is essentially their faith in the strength of the fire line. So when they say there is a line around 100 percent of the fire, but 0 percent containment, it means they are concerned that the fire could jump the line.
