SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Late Tuesday morning the Spokane Valley Fire Dept. was dispatched to a mobile
home fire at 2414 North Bowdish in the Valley.
The fire destroyed the home and
fire investigators say there were 4 people inside the home who got out safely.
One of those people was 12-year-old Taylor King. King tells KHQ that he and his
step father were inside when his step father saw the lights "flickering" then
King, his step father and the other two occupants immediately
went outside where King called 911. King says he also went next door to let his
neighbor's know that there was a fire and they should leave their home
Fire investigators have not yet determined a cause
of the fire. Family members inside at the time say they believe it was caused by
an electrical issue, possibly by the air conditioning unit. There were no
injuries in the fire.
