Garage fire reported in Spokane Valley, fire spreading to nearby field

The fire, which started in an RV, is spreading to a nearby field and flames are visible from several blocks in the area.

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — Spokane Valley Firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire that started in an RV and spread to the garage of a home near 14th and University on Tuesday afternoon.

The fire started in an RV and spread to the garage of a house on 14th Avenue and South University Road, according to Julie Happy, the spokesperson for Spokane Valley Fire Department (SVFD). 

Happy said a mother and two children live in the home where the fire was burning. The three left the home to go to the grocery store and came back shortly after. Once they were inside, Happy said a neighbor knocked on their door and told them the RV in their driveway was on fire.

The fire spread to the garage and later spread to a nearby field, according to Happy. 

No injuries have been reported at this time and all people in the house were able to get out safely.

University Road was closed for several hours but has since reopened as crews begin to leave the scene.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time but the RV and garage are both considered a total loss.
