Crews were able to quickly contain a fire that broke out in a Hillyard neighborhood home, but damages are still estimated to be in the thousands. According to the Spokane Fire Department, the fire in the 3800 block of E. Broad Avenue was contained and extinguished within ten minutes of crews arriving at the scene. However, damage due to the fire is estimated at $40,000 while the property and contents of the home are valued at $80,000.
