Spokane is on fire. It apparently began at around 5:20 this afternoon, and has grown to consume several hundred acres in about 4 hours. Due to the location, my Wife’s family have had to evacuate.
With any luck, the fire will be out soon, and no more homes will be consumed. It will be incredibly strange to try to return to the Dishman Hills after this is done, based solely on what I’ve heard so far.
No cause reported. Just fire. It’s been quite a few years since fire season has struck so dangerously close to home for me.
