Arson spree keeps dept busy. On the night of August 12th, the Coeur d'Alene Fire Department, along with mutual aid companies, responded to four arson caused fires. The first fire occured at 1515 N. Second St and was started in a 24' boat that was being restored. The boat was on a trailer next to a warehouse. The boat was destroyed and crews prevented extension to the warehouse.

While crews were still working the boat fire, the arsonist broke into the County Courthouse at 315 N. Government Way, igniting 4 fires in various offices. The building sprinkler system activated and controlled/extinguished all fires. The building suffered heavy water damage.

Later that evening after all stations were back in their houses, the arsonist lit-up a dumpster behind in an alley behind a downtown business. The fire was behind Eversons Jewelry at 315 Sherman Ave. The heat from the fire broke out a window into a business and damaged a gas meter, causing a natural gas leak with fire.Crews prevented extension into the 2 businesses exposed and controlled the gas leak/fire until arrival of the gas company.

Again, while crews were operating at the gas leak/fire, a vehicle fire was reported at 7th and Harrison Ave. Upon arrival, crews found a pick-up truck on fire. A suspect was arrested later that day and admitted starting the fires.

On Thursday August 15,2002 at 1307 hours fifteen companies of Firefighters, three Rescue Ambulances, five Battalion Command Teams, two Hazardous Materials Squads, two Foam Tenders and Heavy Rescue under the direction of Assistant Chief Tim Manning responded to a Hazardous Materials Incident on the Southbound Harbor Freeway at Rosecrans Avenue. First units on scene reported an overturned tanker truck that was leaking diesel fuel at the approximate rate of ten gallons per minute due to a traffic collision with one other vehicle. Firefighters constructed dikes of sand that was delivered by Cal Trans and was able to control some of the run-off of the leaking product. The tanks were essentially empty of product approximately one hour into the incident. After suppression resources were in place Heavy Rescue righted the overturned tanker and tractor without incident. Two adult male occupants of the truck and one adult female of the other vehicle were transported to Gardena Memorial Hospital in stable condition with minor complaints. The incident was turned over to Cal Trans and County Health.
