Colbert home goes up in flames for second time in two days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane County fire crews battled a house fire Monday morning in the same home where a fire broke out just a day earlier.

Fire officials say fire first broke in the home in the 21000 block of N. Panorama Rd. Sunday morning, just after 11.

The family, eight children and two adults, was at church at the time and no one was injured in the blaze. The home was ruled uninhabitable and the Red Cross was said to be providing assistance to the family.

After knocking down the Sunday morning fire, firefighters left behind thermal imaging gear to monitor the home for hot spots that may flare back up.

Monday morning, just before 6, a hot spot that went undetected flared up in the home's attic and quickly spread.

"The way houses are insulated today, they are getting tougher and tougher to find hot spots, especially in the attic, we couldn't pull all of the insulation out, we just couldn't detect it," said Fire District 4's Pat Humphries.

Fire crews were able to knock the second fire down and say it's a blessing the family of 10 was not home during both fires.
