Spokane Valley fire crews fought a brush fire that burned and RV, shed and garage Friday morning.

Crews said the fire started just before 11:30 a.m. on Pines Road and Valleyway Avenue. At first the call started as a field and garage were on fire. However, when crews arrived they saw the detached garage, RV and and shed were fully involved.

Firefighters said winds kept flames away from a large pile of old tires which could have posed an environmental hazard if burned.

No firefighters were injured but a resident was treated for having a difficult time breathing.

No word on the cause of an estimate of damages.
