SPOKANE, Wash. — A third person has now died from injuries they suffered in a house fire on Sunday. 

Spokane firefighters responded to an explosion call at E. Nebraska Ave and N. Perry St. Sunday afternoon. They found a house engulfed in flames, as well as two car fires when they arrived. 

Authorities have not identified the victims but said one was a man and the other was a 17-year-old girl. They were found on the second floor of the house. 

The victim who passed Monday had been hospitalized for severe burns. A fourth person was also burned, while a fifth person inside the house was not injured. 

Sunday’s fire was the second deadly fire in Spokane this past week.
