A fire broke out at the home of a Spokane County firefighter on Tuesday night, and it was the firefighter's wife's heroic actions that saved lives.

Spokane Valley Fire Department Assistant Chief Greg Godfrey said in a press release on Wednesday that two companies from the Spokane Valley Fire Department, and three companies from Spokane County Fire District #8 responded to the house just after 9:30pm and found heavy fire and smoke coming from the backside of the home. They also recognized the house and family as that of Fire District #8 Firefighter Pete Flatt. Flatt was working at Fire Station 81 on the south hill at the time of call, but his wife and three children were home at the time of the fire.

Firefighters attacked the flames and confined them to the first floor of the home before extinguishing them.

Firefighter Flatt's wife, Rachelle, told investigators that she had just put the children to bed when she noticed flames on the back patio. She called 911 and as she turned to go get her kids, she heard a loud noise. Firefighters say this was the relief valve on the BBQ propane tank releasing and shattered the patio doors. This allowed for the flames to coming straight into the house.

Rachelle had already gotten the oldest child out of the house, and then went back in to rescue her other child and baby. Firefighters say as she left the home with the baby, the heat and smoke were extremely intense, and Rachelle received minor burns to her ears, singed hair and severe smoke inhalation.

The family dog did not survive, but Assistant Chief Greg Godfrey said that without the heroic efforts of Rachelle, the fire could have been much more tragic. Rachelle was taken to the hospital for treatment. Thanks to Rachelle, the kids are all ok.
