Two Early Morning House Fires Keep Firefighters Busy

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Fire Department had a busy morning Saturday, responding to two house fires within hours of each other.

First, just after midnight, crews responded to a reported structure fire at 1107 W. Fredrick after the caller reported a fire in the kitchen and the house rapidly filling with smoke. Within four minutes of the call firefighters were on scene and quickly attacked the kitchen fire. As other companies arrived and made sure all occupants were out, crews began efforts to remove smoke and see if the fire had spread. They were able to contain the fire to the kitchen, although there was heavy smoke damage throughout the residence.

It was determined that an unattended stove was the cause, and although the kitchen sustained heavy damage, no one was hurt.

Approximately two hours later, firefighters were called to a house fire at 1703 E. 40th. As crews arrived they saw heavy smoke coming from the front door. The lone occupant of the home met firefighters on the front lawn and reported that no one else was inside. Crews immediately began their attack and were able to extinguish the fire to a rear bedroom just as it began to flash over. The owner of the house, a 45-year-old male, suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns to both hands and one arm. He was transported to a local hospital and his condition is unknown at this time.

There were no other injuries however upon further investigation it was found that a cat died in the fire. The cause is still under investigation.
