Spokane Valley home a total loss

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Units from the Spokane Valley Fire Department and Fire District 8 were dispatched at 02:27 this morning to the report of a residential fire at 3507 S. Ridgeview Dr.  The first units arrived within 3 minutes and found the backside of the house and garage on fire.  The fire was beginning to extend into the eaves of an adjacent residential garage at 3515 S. Ridgeview Dr. 

The residents at 3515 S. Ridgeview Drive were awakened by what sounded like an explosion and were able to get out of their home safely.  As they left their home, they took a neighborhood telephone contact list.  They immediately called their neighbor living at 3507 S. Ridgeview Drive, which at this time was becoming well involved with fire, and woke up a gentleman that was sleeping in the basement.  He was able to exit the burning home safely. 

There were 24 firefighters that responded to this incident.  The residence at 3507 S. Ridgeview Drive was a total loss and the residence at 3515 S. Ridgeview Drive sustained minor damage to the eaves and the attic area of the garage.  As of this press release, the on scene Investigator had not determined the cause of the fire.

Both homes had working smoke detectors.  Residents are encouraged to check their smoke detectors to be sure they are in working order.  If a resident cannot afford the cost of the smoke detector, they are available for free at any Spokane Valley Fire Station.
