Two north Spokane structure fires may be connected

SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane firefighters are investigating two structure fires in north Spokane that broke out within 15 minutes of each other and may be connected. The first fire started at 1507 East Everett just before 11:00 p.m. Sunday night. The call first came in as a shed fire, but within about five minutes the crews that responded reported that the fire extended to the home.

 

Firefighters were able to get the fire out before it did any serious damage. It's not clear right now whether there were any injuries or how many people were inside the home at the time of the fire. Fire crews remained on scene throughout the night to watch for flare-ups.

 

At around 11:15 Sunday night, crews were called to a second house fire, this one just down the street from the East Everett fire at 407 East Crown Ave. At that second fire, a KHQ crew was able to speak with a neighbor. That neighbor told KHQ he'd heard some teens were playing with firecrackers in the area and that may have been what sparked the two fires.

 

That claim has not been confirmed by the Spokane County Fire Department and so far there is no indication that either one of the fires is suspicious. A fire investigator was on scene late Sunday night to collect information about both fires.
