Fire press release

East Central garage fire

Incident #: 2012044490
Date of Incident: 10/12/2012
Issuing Officer: Battalion Chief Steve Sabo

At 1:09 A.M. on Friday, October 12th, the Spokane Fire Department responded to a reported garage fire at 217 S. Fiske. The first engine arrived at that address to find a fully involved single car detached garage. Crews stretched fire attack hoses and protected the nearby house while knocking down the large volume of fire. The garage had already started to collapse, so the crews completed extinguishment from the exterior. There were no vehicles in the garage at the time of the fire. There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters.

The cause of this fire is currently under investigation by the Spokane Fire Department’s Special Investigation Unit.

Damage was confined to the garage and its contents, and part of a wood fence. Electrical wires supplying power to the house were also damaged and being replaced by Avista.

# Firefighters Responding: 27

Dollar Loss: $ 10,000
