SPOKANE, Wash. — Crews from the Spokane Fire Department put out a house fire burning near Franklin Park.

The fire was burning off North Howard Street and West Wabash Avenue inside the garage of a home on Saturday. When arriving to the home, firefighters saw smoke and fire coming from the home. Crews confirmed with the homeowner that no one was inside the garage.

Before firefighters went into the garage, they saw heavy fire in the overhead framing members of the home, getting to the point where it could have collapsed. Because of this, crews put out the fire from the outside of the home.

There was damage to the garage from the fire. Crews knocked down the fire in five minutes and stayed an extra two hours for overhaul operations to make sure the fire was completely put out.

No one was hurt in the fire.  The Soijane Fire Department Special Investigation Unit listed the cause of the fire as “undetermined” due to the extensive damage and unsafe conditions for entry.
