Dog Killed In Fire At Duplex In Northeast Spokane

Spokane Firefighters say a dog died during a carport fire in northeast Spokane Monday night. 

The call came in just before 10:00pm, and crews were told a car was on fire inside a carport that was attached to a single-story duplex. Crews arriving on scene saw heavy smoke and flames showing from the back of the duplex and upgraded the call to a working fire. 

Firefighters quickly attacked the blaze and were able to extinguish it quickly, however the car and carport were destroyed. The backside of the duplex unit was heavily damaged and the front unit was ok, however all four occupants of both units will be displaced as the structure is not safe to stay in. 

During the course of the fire, power lines in the alley behind the duplex fell and power was knocked out to several homes in the area. Avista is working on restoring service. 

Right now the cause is under investigation, but officials say right now it does not appear to be suspicious in nature.

WAFF-TV reports the Marshall County Sheriff's Office mistakenly spent $22,000 on toilet paper and another $9,000 for 450 cases of trash bags. That's a big problem, because its entire budget for janitorial supplies for next year is only $15,000.
