Structure fire in Spokane Valley causes $60,000 in damages

 

At 9:27 a.m. on Sunday, March 1st, the Spokane Valley Fire Department responded to a structure fire at 3021 S. Bates Road. The 9-1-1 caller reported she had found smoke and flames coming from within her laundry/utility room. She quickly evacuated the structure taking her two children with her.

 

When firefighters first arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the eaves of the home and the fire was declared a working fire, which allowed additional support units to respond. A total of 15 units were dispatched. 

 

Fire crews made an aggressive attack on the rear of the structure through the doorway that was beginning to burn through. This door made entry into the lower level of the home leading into the laundry/utility room. The first arriving units also were told the structure had been evacuated, but firefighters continued on with both ventilation and primary search to confirm the residence was clear. According to the department, the fire was extinguished withing 15 minutes of their arrival.

Cellist Zuill Bailey kicks off series of free performances for Northwest Bach Festival

 

 

Cellist Zuill Bailey kicked off a series of 6 free Flash-Bach concerts on Wednesday with a noon performance in the Riverpark Square Atrium.

 

These flash performances are organized to make classical music more accessible to various people in different locations.

 

“I think that concerts are one thing. Those are people that know to go, they know the beauty of the music, they prepare themselves to go. But I really feel the need to bring music to people that may not know,” Bailey said. “It's basically bringing music to the people, in any way that I possibly can outside the concert hall.”
