Even Fire Station’s Have Fires

OFFICIAL RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY FIRE DEPT. - Spokane Valley Fire Department's Engine 6 was returning to their station (6306 E. Sprague Ave.) from a call just after 11pm last night. As they backed into the bay they heard a beep, beep, beep from a smoke alarm and went to investigate. When they walked from the bay into the dorm room they saw a light haze and smelled smoke.

Upon further investigation and entering the kitchen, the crew was greeted with black smoke banking down from the ceiling and a glow from fire. The crew grabbed a fire extinguisher and knocked down the flames, pulled the engine out of the station, and radioed Dispatch for additional help. Engine 6's crew looked through the kitchen window and saw the fire was extinguished. They canceled all but one engine to assist.

An Investigator was requested finding the cause to be the dishwasher. After running the serial number, it was found to have a recall with the unit. The dishwasher is a Bosch model # SHU43C02UC. Homeowners can find out if their appliances have been recalled by visiting www.cpsc.gov.

Estimate of damages are around $5000. The Engine and crew spent the night at Station 1 but should be back responding from their own Station this evening.

    Spokane cat is probably bigger than your dog

    KHQ.COM - An average house cat weighs between 7-10 pounds but one Spokane woman has a cat whose size is almost unheard of. Out of the corner of your eye, Ollie might be mistaken for a dog... he's that big! Not your normal house cat, Ollie is a Savannah cat, a hybrid breed that's a cross between a serval cat and a domestic cat. So while it's not surprising that he's bigger than a domestic cat, his size is still shocking.
