SPOKANE, Wash. — A child is in critical condition after a house fire near Illinois and Morton early Sunday morning.

Fire personnel were dispatched to the house, quickly getting everyone out who hadn’t already escaped. A minor was found in the first floor bathroom and was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

Six people were in the home, and fire officials say the fire was accidental, caused by having combustible items too close to a fireplace.

The Fire Department estimates the fire caused $100,000 in damage.
