UNIVERSITY PLACE — Firefighters found the body of a woman at an apartment fire in University Place in Pierce County.
West Pierce Fire and Rescue says a neighbor was burned Sunday evening in a rescue attempt. He ran outside when he smelled smoke, saw flames coming from his neighbor’s unit and suffered burns kicking in the door.
KOMO reports he was taken to a hospital with serious burns.
Firefighters doused the flames and found the woman’s body. A dog also died in the fire.
