Two Families Lose Their Homes In Two Separate Fires

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

An electrical issue sparked a fire at an apartment complex on the 6900 block of North Wiscomb just before 11pm Saturday leaving a family of three without a home. When fire officials arrived fire and smoke were showing from the building.  Fire crews found the origin of the fire in a common wall between two apartments and in the attic above that wall.  Two apartments are damaged.

A wood stove is to blame for a fire that started around nine Saturday night on the 3000 block of East Rowan in a single story home. Fire crews were able to put the fire out within 10 minutes but were on the scene for hours removing burnt items from the home and checking for hot spots.  Officials say the fire was accidental.  One person and their dog were not able to return to the home due to fire and structural damage.  

No injuries were reported in either fire.  The total cost of damage in both fires is an estimated $35,000.
