At approximately midnight, the Spokane Fire Department responded to the 2300 E block of Central Avenue on a report of a possible house fire. Spokane Engine 15 arrived just minutes after dispatch and reported heavy smoke and fire from the front of a single-story residential structure along with moderate smoke around the eave line.

Spokane Engine 15, along with Spokane Tower 2, gained entry into the structure. The fire was quickly confined and extinguished, preventing the spread to the rear of the home. Spokane Tower 2 searched the entire structure to ensure all occupants had made it out. 

Eight fire apparatus along with 23 firefighters responded to fight the fire. The fire was contained and extinguished within 10 minutes of units arriving on the scene.

No injuries to civilians or firefighters were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Spokane Fire Special Investigation Unit.
