KHQ.COM - Spokane firefighters were busy Thursday morning.  They responded to 2 early morning structure fires.
The first one was in Medical Lake on Brooks Rd. When KHQ arrived close to 5am, there were still fire crews on the scene. Firefighters were in the home, investigating the cause of the fire, and smoke was still coming from the room.
There was also a fire in North Spokane in Cliffwood Court.  The fire blew out a huge portion of the roof of the home, and Lt. Nathan Jeffries said the house was uninhabitable. 
Firefighters are investigating the cause of the fire but one commander told us it would be very difficult to determine the cause of the fire this morning because the damage was so devastating.
Neighbors told us that the 4 people inhabiting the home got out of the house after their smoke detectors went off.  They are uninjured and made it safely to the house of a neighbor.
Fire crews were beginning to clear the scene and leave the house around 7am. 
The work of the fire crews was made extra difficult today due to the very icy roads.
