SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Units from the Spokane Valley Fire Department responded to a brush fire reported at 7:55 PM Friday night located at 12420 E. Mansfield Ave.. in the Spokane Valley.  Initial 9-1-1 callers reported a brush fire and three (3) SVFD units were dispatched.  Subsequent 9-1-1 calls reported that structures involved in fire in the general vicinity of the brush fire.

The first arriving company from station 8 arrived four (4) minutes after receipt of the 9-1-1 call.  On arrival, the company officer reported a brush fire with three structures either involved or exposed to a rapidly spreading fire.   Initial actions were taken to extinguish the main body of the brush fire involving trees and light brush and protect the structures from further damage.  One recycling building, a construction trailer / office and apartment complex garage structure were damaged.  Additional responding units were able to contain the fire before causing major damage to the multi-unit garage structure and construction trailer / office.  No injuries were reported to civilians or fire personnel.

Mansfield Ave. was shut down for a short time so fire crews could extinguish the blaze.

A total of 7 Spokane Valley engines, ladders, and support units with 25 personnel were assigned to the incident.  Assistance was provided from the Spokane Valley Police Department and the Washington State Patrol. 

The fire is currently under investigation and damage is estimated to be approximately $10,000.   

The Spokane Valley Fire Department would like to remind home and business property owners to maintain as much clear space around combustible structures as possible.  Brush and trees in close proximity to structures allow for rapid fire spread from burning brush to structures.
