At approximately 1 p.m., the Spokane Fire Department responded to the 3200 E. block of Mission St. report of a possible house fire.

Upon arrival, crews reported moderate smoke from the back of a split-level residential structure along with light smoke around the eave line. The fire was quickly confined to an attached garage and extinguished preventing the spread to the home itself. Firefighters conducted a search of the entire structure to ensure all occupants had made it out.

The fire caused moderate damage to the rear of the two car attached garage. The cause of the fire is under investigations by the Spokane Fire Special Investigation Unit.

No injuries to civilians or firefighters were reported.
