PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE FIRE DEPT: At 10:43 A.M. Thursday, November 24th, the Spokane Fire Department responded to a reported fire at 814 W. 17th Avenue, in the City of Spokane.

The first fire company arrived on scene within three minutes and reported a two story wood frame house with smoke showing from the eaves and attic vents. The homeowner met the arriving fire crew and reported a fire in the attic.

As fire crews advanced hose lines to the attic, others laddered the roof and cut holes to allow the heat and smoke to escape. The fire was located and knocked down within fifteen minutes, but overhaul of the burned and fire damaged areas continued for several hours.

Damage to the house was confined to a 12' by 12' area in the attic, the roof above that area, and some contents stored in the attic. In addition, the house sustained minor smoke, and water damage on the second floor.

Electrical wiring was also damaged. The two adult occupants will be unable to stay in the house until the wiring can be repaired. An investigator from the Spokane Fire Department's Special Investigation Unit conducted an investigation to determine the fire's cause, but has not yet released his report.

In all, twenty-six fire department personnel responded on seven trucks and two command vehicles. There were no injuries to the occupants or any of the firefighters.

The cause of this fire is still under investigation by the Spokane Fire Department's Special Investigation Unit.

Damage:
Damage to the house and contents is estimated to be $10,000.
