Man Who Died In House Fire Not Yet Positively Identified

SPOKANE, Wash. - The man who died in a fire on 1003 East Ermina has not yet been positively identified by investigators. According to the official press release, Spokane Fire is waiting for the positive identification and notification to next-of-kin.

The press release  also states that Spokane Police arrived prior to Spokane Fire because Spokane Fire was given the wrong address.

Official Press Release:

The man who died in the tragic fire incident at 1003 East Ermina has not yet been positively identified by investigators. An autopsy was completed this morning and we expect to release a name after positive identification and notification of next-of-kin have been made.

The first 911 call reporting the fire came into dispatch at 1:12 AM. Routinely, both Spokane Police and Spokane Fire respond. Spokane Police arrived a few minutes before Spokane Fire and confirmed a fatality inside an active house fire. Inadvertently, the wrong address was initially dispatched to fire personnel; however the majority of fire companies that were responding were redirected to the corrected address while enroute. The first fire company arrived in ten minutes and 22 seconds after the initial call.

Yesterday's tragic fire was the fourth fire fatality in the City of Spokane this year (2010). The investigation is ongoing and additional information will be released as it becomes available.
