Springfield Ave. Responding units were notified of that a person may have been trapped int he basement of the home. Multiple Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies who were in the immediate area responded to the house and attempted to enter the basement and rescue the girl, but were forced to retreat because of severe heat and smoke.

Deputies confirmed with fire crews that there was indeed someone trapped, and firefighters upgraded the fire response, which brought additional units to the scene.
