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.
Three people were treated for minor injuries after an apartment fire in the city of SeaTac early today.
Investigators are working to determine what caused the fire in the 3000 block of South 154 Street at 4:37 a.m. The two-alarm fire heavily damaged one apartment on the second floor of the three-story complex, according to Capt. Kyle Ohashi of the SeaTac Fire Department.
Other units were evacuated as smoke spread through the building’s hallway.
No one was found in the apartment where the fire started, Ohashi said.
The three people injured were treated at the scene and did not need to be taken to a hospital.
