Second Fire In The Autumn Ridge Apartments

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Firefighters stayed at the Autumn Ridge Apartments on Thursday night following a large three-alarm fire. They were watching for flare-ups all night, and around 5:30 Friday morning, firefighters saw smoke coming from the other side of the complex.

They quickly confirmed that another apartment in the same complex was on fire. This fire was much smaller and was in a vacant apartment building.

Investigators do not believe the fires are related. Both are under investigation.

Victims of Thursday's fire are still left trying to figure out what they are going to do. Mary Brayman lived on the bottom floor of the burned apartment and is worried about what she is going to do next.

"I just hope we can find somewhere to live and get the stuff out, cause like I said we are not millionaires. We can't buy couches, or tables or anything like that. We are on social security, we don't get much. I don't know how we are going to do it."

Brayman said her apartment did not have too much fire damage; it was just soaked with water. She is now waiting for the fire crews to let her back in her home.
