A North Seattle family was hospitalized after a fire seriously damaged their house this morning. The fire department said a firefighter was also treated for a minor injury.
Seattle fire crews were called to the home in the 9700 block of 1st Avenue Northwest, near the Greenwood neighborhood, around 1:40 a.m. on the report of the fire. The family, a mother, father and child, made it out of the home safely after hearing smoke detectors.
The three were taken to Harborview Medical Center for smoke inhalation, said Seattle Fire spokeswoman Sue Stangl.
Stangl said the fire was started by an overheated extension cord underneath an outside deck.
Damage to the home and belongings is estimated at about $450,000.

Folks in Seattle are spotting a bright ring of light around the sun today. Known as a sun halo or a “sun dog,” the ring occurs when light passes through the ice crystals of high-altitude cirrus clouds. The light refracts at an angle, creating a halo that can be observed from certain vantage points.

The historic waiting room at Seattle’s King Street rail station has been restored to look exactly as it did when it opened in 1906 with its ornamental plaster ceiling, Corinthian columns, mosaic floor tiles and a massive bronze chandelier.
It was reopened for Amtrak passengers in a ceremony with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and transportation and preservation officials.
The renovation was the last phase of a $55 million project that began after the city purchased the landmark downtown building in 2008 from Burlington Northern Santa Fe. Other upgrades included a new roof and structural reinforcement to help the building and its clock tower withstand an earthquake.
The city Transportation Department says the work was funded by city, state and federal funds including the Bridging the Gap levy.
