Three minor injuries in SeaTac fire

UPDATE 3:20 P.M.| This morning’s fire was intentionally set in multiple locations on a second-floor unit, according to SeaTac Fire Department investigators.

The single occupant that unit is registered to was not at the fire scene when firefighters arrived early this morning. The King County Sheriff’s Office is now looking for that person.

No one was seriously injured in the fire, but two people were treated for smoke inhalation and one for a twisted ankle at the scene.

Only the apartment that was set on fire is uninhabitable, so all other residents could return to their units today, according to the SeaTac Fire Department.
