Investigators determine N. Spokane wildfire was human-caused

Fire Near Euclid And Division

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.
