Car fire in north Spokane: firework found inside


Car fire in north Spokane

Fire investigators are taking a look at a car fire that happened in north Spokane a few blocks south of Shadle Park High School. 

A witness told KHQ he was driving by and saw a car on fire near Cedar and Lacrosse. That witness notified the neighbor that the car was in flames and called firefighters. The same witness also told KHQ he saw a firework in the front seat of the car, something KHQ reporter Peter Maxwell also saw at the scene. 

While fighting the car fire, another person reported hearing fireworks and a small brush fire down the road from the car fire. It is unknown if the two fires are related. 

Fire investigators are still working to determine a cause and Peter Maxwell will have the latest on this story, including if investigators believe the firework started the car fire, tonight on KHQ Local News.
