An 82-year-old woman rescued Tuesday from a North Seattle fire caused by smoking materials has died of her injuries.
Her husband, who suffered smoke inhalation in the fire in the 11700 block of 22nd Avenue Northeast, is still at Harborview Medical Center, but in satisfactory condition, said hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg. Firefighters rescued him on Tuesday after he went looking for his wife through heavy smoke.
Seattle firefighters found Anna Moore unconscious just after noon in a bathtub on the first floor of her home. Medics revived her pulse on the way to Harborview, but she died Wednesday morning, Gregg said.
Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said the fire was caused by improperly discarded smoking materials and has been labeled an accident.
