City officials have ended an investigation into a November parking garage fire near Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and were unable to determine if the building burned from arson, because it was too damaged for investigators to enter safely.
Michele Anderson, spokesperson for the Spokane Fire Department, said the building, at 675 S. McClellan St., is unsafe and has been turned over to developer Hospitality Associates, LLC. The company is building a Hampton Inn & Suites hotel and the 59,248-square-foot multistory parking garage.
“It’s going to be undetermined because of how much damage was done,” Anderson said.
Hospitality Associates, based in Spokane Valley, is a hotel management company that manages more than 75 hotels on the West Coast and Alaska.
