SPOKANE VALLEY-- Crews battled a garage fire in Spokane Valley around 11:30 a.m.
At 11:27 AM, crews from the Spokane Valley Fire Department responded to a report of a field on fire around the intersection of Pines and Valleyway. Crews were informed that the fire had reached a garage.
Crews responding to the fire had a difficult time arriving on scene due to heavy traffic and onlookers according to officials.
Valleyway was closed at Pines and east to Woodlawn for approximately 2 hours.
A detached garage, shed, and an RV were fully involved when crews arrived. Winds kept the fire away from a large pile of old tires which could have posed an environmental hazard.
The incident will be forwarded to local officials with the City of Spokane Valley to make sure the property will be cleaned up and debris removed.
An Investigator from the SVFD Prevention Bureau was on scene to determine the cause and an estimate of damages.
