SPOKANE COUNTY, WA — Firefighters and Medics with the Spokane County Fire District #8, Spokane County Fire, and Spokane Valley Fire were dispatched to a structure fire with an attached garage earlier today.


The fire was contained to the multiple car garage but had been spreading towards the main house when firefighters stopped it.

In turn, fire crews saved the home from further damage, unlike its attached garage which appeared to be fully engulfed during fire operations and even though firefighters worked on it tirelessly.

Protecting the main house and other structures is always one of several key objectives when fighting a fire to this extent.
