SPOKANE, WA – A 4-year-old child has died of injuries he sustained during a house fire last week in Spokane, according to The Spokesman-Review.

The incident happened in the 1200 block of E Illinois Avenue, early on the morning of January 3, when the fire spread from a fireplace to objects nearby.

A 4-year-old boy died a few days later due to smoke inhalation injuries he sustained during the blaze.

A dog named Chewy was also killed in the blaze.

Four other people sustained non-critical wounds and were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The fire has been ruled as an accident at this time.
