A woman suffered second- and third-degree burns after a trailer on a semi-truck caught fire this afternoon in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood.

The 32-year-old woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center from the site at Eighth Avenue South and South Portland Street, according to the Seattle Fire Department.

The fire was caused by an unattended candle left burning inside the trailer by the burn victim, SFD said. The loss is estimated at $1,000.
