Four Coeur d'Alene Police Officers Suffer Smoke Inhalation Trying To Save Occupants From Structure Fire

Posted: Updated:

Coeur d'Alene Police Department Press Release:

Neighbors called 911 dispatch regarding a residential structure fire at 615 Hattie Avenue.  Coeur d'Alene PD units made an emergency response to the address and found heavy smoking emitting from the roof.  Information from neighbors indicated a family could be trapped inside.  Four officers forced entry into the residence and immediately encountered flames to the ceiling area which had already burnt through the ceiling and roof.  Officers swept the home and discovered it was unoccupied.

All four officers suffered from smoke-inhalation during the incident but were uninjured.  Investigators from the Coeur d'Alene Police and Fire Departments investigated the cause of the fire.  No findings are available at this time.  The tenants were safely located elsewhere.  The Coeur d'Alene Fire Department extinguished the blaze with assistance from Kootenai County Fire and Rescue and the Northern Lakes Fire District.
