The medical building housing Kootenai Cancer Center was briefly evacuated this afternoon when flames broke out during maintenance on a boiler.

He was evaluated at the scene by firefighters, she said. The boiler is located on the first floor of the building at 700 W. Ironwood Drive, Coeur d’Alene. The building is owned by Parkwood Business Properties. It houses the cancer center, a lab and other medical offices.


‘Kid Cannabis’ Screening Tonight

April 23, 2014 3:23 p.m. - Updated: 4:12 p.m.

My friend Kevin Taylor gets around the Inland Northwest. We first worked together more than 30 years ago at the short-lived Spokane Sports Journal. Then both of us graduated to The Spokesman-Review. Kevin later worked for the Pacific Northwest Inlander and is now a freelance writer who shops his stuff around, as all good independent journalists tend to do. As the author of literally hundreds of stories, Kevin has immersed himself in many aspects of Pacific Northwest life. One of the stories that he did nine years ago for the Inlander, though, may be the only one that inspired a movie. “Kid Cannibis,” which will open Friday at the Magic Lantern Theater, is based on a story that Kevin wrote under the headline “B.C. Bud: The Region's Top Cash Crop”/Dan Webster, 7 Blog. More here.

Question: Are you interested in seeing this movie?
