SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Fire officials have said they believe a house fire in east Spokane was started by a log that rolled out of a fire place. Fire crews told the family that lives in the duplex that it isn't livable anymore because it was not safe.
Four teenagers were in the home on E. South Riverton when the fire started. They were awoken by smoke in the residence.
Authorities allowed the victims to go in and get their belongings but no one is allowed to live in the home until the damage is repaired. This is the second fire at that address in a week. The power had been disconnected after the first fire and the family was using an extension cord from a neighbor for basic needs.
Initially, Avista crews said they beleived the extension cord may have had something to do with the fire but fire investigators determined that the extension cord did not play a factor.
The Red Cross responded to the fire and assisted the victims of the fire.
