SPOKANE, Wash. -

A fire broke out in a home just south of Audubon Elementary near the intersection of Cannon and Mansfield Wednesday morning. 

Brian Schaeffer from the Spokane Fire Department said 2 adults and 1 child live in the house, but only 1 person was in the home when the fire broke out. That person heard the smoke detector go off, woke up, and left the house safely when they saw the fire in the bedroom.

The fire started in the bedroom and spread to the attic but firefighters were able to contain it from there. 

The intersection of Cannon and Mansfield will be blocked off until around 10:00 am as firefighters continue to work on the house and investigate the cause. Smoke detectors were very helpful in keeping this family safe.

    JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - An extensive effort to capture and kill non-native lake trout in Yellowstone Lake is showing progress with fewer of the invasive fish being found. Yellowstone National Park fisheries chief Todd Koel says so far this year about 155,000 lake trout have been caught, which is down 63,000 from this time last year. Koel tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that it's a sign that the lake trout population is finally crashing.
