Investigators determine N. Spokane wildfire was human-caused
SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Fire Department has ruled that Tuesday’s wildfire just off Division was human-caused.
Spokane Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer said it is not clear if the fire was accidental or set intentionally.
The fire, which burned about three acres, caused more than $100,000 worth of damage to both nearby homes and Ferraro’s Restaurant.
Should fire investigators determine the fire was set intentionally, it would be considered felony arson.
