Seattle man hospitalized after accidental garage fire

Fire investigators say a fire that demolished a garage on a South Adams Street property started accidentally when a man who was living in the structure fell asleep while smoking.

According to Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore, the fast-moving fire started in a garage and threatened a house on the same property.

Moore said the resident of the garage was not  injured by fire or smoke, but was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of an unrelated medical condition.

The damage to the garage and its contents was estimated at $12,000, he said.
