Unmanned Wash. Fire Engine Crashes into House

An unmanned Spokane fire engine crashed into a home while crews were responded to a medical call last night, according to KXLY.

Firefighters and paramedics arrived at a home on Regal Road for a reported seizure at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Firefighters left the engine parked about 100 yards away from the home, Fire Chief Bobby Williams told the news station.

Seconds after the firefighters entered the home they heard a loud noise and noticed the engine had crashed into the porch. It knocked away portion of the porch's support and also punched a hole in the wall of the living room, Williams said.

No one was inside the engine has it traveled in reverse down the street, jumped a curb and hit the home.

Investigators are currently trying to figure out what caused the engine to hit the home.
