Last night at approximately 8:42 p.m., the Spokane Fire Department and the Spokane Valley Fire Department responded to the 2500 E. block of Pacific Ave. on a report of a residential structure fire.

The first arriving crew reported heavy smoke from the rear of the home. The incident was upgraded to a working structure fire to ensure additional resources were dispatched.

Firefighters gained entry into the structure and quickly located the source of the fire. The fire was quickly confined and extinguished preventing the spread to additional parts of the home. Crews worked together to rapidly conducted a search of the building to ensure no occupants were still inside.

The fire was contained and extinguished within 20 minutes of units arriving on scene. No injuries to civilians or firefighters were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Spokane Fire Department's Special Investigation Unit.
