Late Night Fire On The South Hill
SPOKANE, Wash. - A late night fire leaves six Spokane residents displaced this morning. It happened around 10:45 PM Sunday evening at 606 South Scott Street. Initially about five fire crews were called to the scene but officials tell us two crews went into the home and were able to contain the fire to the room where it started.
Spokane Fire Department Battalion Chief, Craig Cornelius, says it was an electrical fire that started in the back of the house, possibly because of an overloaded electrical circuit. We're told the residents in the house normally burn wood for heat, but started to use electrical heaters to stay warm. Fortunately, no injuries were reported. Power was shut off to the home, but residents should be able to return as soon as the fire is investigated more thoroughly.
The Red Cross Assisted the people and have given them temporary shelter at a local motel.
