Early Morning Fire Displaces One

SPOKANE, Wash. - Early Friday morning Spokane Fire crews responded to an attic fire on Spokane's south hill. It happened just before 12:30 AM, near the intersection of West 25th and S. Bernard.

 Fire crews say they were called to the home after the man who lived in the home woke to find his home filled with smoke.

 Fire crews tell us it was some sort of electrical fire.  The man who lived in the home stayed with friends overnight.  No word on the amount of damage the home sustained.

Complete Spokane Fire Department Release:

On Friday March 16th, 2012 at 12:25 A.M. the Spokane Fire Department responded companies to an attic fire at 404 W. 25th on the South Hill. Engine 9 from their neighborhood station at 18th and Bernard was the first truck to arrive and found light smoke coming from the eaves on one side of the house. Attack hose lines were advanced to the interior of the house as crews searched for the origin of the smoke. After a search using their Thermal Imaging Camera, crews were able to pinpoint the heat concentration to an area just above the ceiling over the living room of the home. Fire crews then rapidly pulled down the ceiling in this area to expose the hidden fire with the intent to hit the fire with hose streams. They were able to accomplish this in just a few minutes and declare the fire as knocked down. A total of 3 engines, 1 pumper ladder, a ladder truck, a rescue unit and 2 battalion chiefs responded on this fire. The cause at this time appears to be electrical. The Spokane Fire Department Investigation Unit will be continuing their investigation.
