Fire heavily damages home in north Spokane

On Saturday night around 7:15 p.m., the Spokane Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire on the corner of N. Cincinnati St. and E. Carlisle Ave.

First arriving crews reported heavy fire involvement to the front of the building and that all occupants had evacuated.

Initial operations included confirming all occupants were out and extinguishing the fire to the front of the home.

Because the fire had engulfed so much of the front of the house, the attic was also heavily damaged. Due to this factor, fire crews were removed from the structure and firefighting was restricted to the exterior for the safety of the personnel.

Thankfully, there were no reported injuries to civilians or firefighters.

Unfortunately, the fire caused significant damage to the entire home.

Fire investigators with the Spokane Fire Department’s Special Investigation Unit are working to determine the cause.
