Firefighters were called out to a house fire west of Spokane next to the Medical Lake exit off of I-90 Monday afternoon.
The call came in just before 6:00pm in the area of the 6500 block of S. West Terrace Drive. Once firefighters arrived on scene they found flames coming through the roof and upgraded it to a working fire.
After fighting the flames for nearly an hour, firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze. They believe the flames started when a smoker in the back of the house caught a bin of charcoal on fire and it spread to the home.
Everyone in the house made it out safely. The fire was confined to the attic and there is smoke and water damage throughout the home.
