Spokane Valley Fire Department Press Release:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - This evening at approximately 6:45 PM Spokane Valley Fire Department units responded to a reported deck fire at the Whimsical Pig Apartments, E 13303 Mission. En route to the fire responding units received an update from an American Medical Response ambulance crew that the fire had spread to 3 floors.  Upon arrival Engine 7 found fire from a balcony extending up the back side of an apartment building into the attic space.  Crews quickly extinguished the fire on the exterior of the building and initiated an interior attack.  A second alarm was struck at 7 PM due to the potential for the interior fire to spread through the attic space.  The fire was controlled at 7:10 PM and completely extinguished soon after.

Two apartments were heavily damaged by the fire with several others incurring smoke damage. Due to electrical problems the occupants of 10 apartments were temporarily relocated to other units by the staff at the Whimsical Pig.  The origin of the fire was a balcony on the back side of the building.  The cause is under investigation.  Damage is in excess of $100,000.  No one was injured.
