Morning Fire Shuts Down Major Spokane Valley Arterial

SPOKANE VALLEY DEPT. PRESS RELEASE: Early Monday morning Spokane Valley Fire Department crews responded to a reported structure fire at 619 N Vista. Engine 6 arrived first on scene and found a house fire which had extended into several trees. 

Crews extinguished the fire in the trees and began knocking down the fire in the structure.  After several minutes the fire was brought under control and extinguished. 

There was no one inside and the house has been vacant for a number of months.  Damage is estimated at $100,000. 

Fire crews were hampered by several factors: Access to the structure was difficult as the house is located 200 feet off the road and is not visible from the street. Additionally the driveway accessing the house was not marked. 

It is very important to mark your driveway with the proper address when your home is not visible from the street. This will enable crews to quickly locate the emergency scene. The fire is currently under investigation.
