Two residents escaped unharmed from an apartment fire in SeaTac Saturday night, Dec. 7.
The cause of the fire – in the 3000 block of S. 204th Street – is under investigation.
Firefighters from SeaTac, the Port of Seattle, South King Fire and Rescue and Burien were dispatched at 8:17 pm to a report of a possible fire at the above address. When they arrived on scene they found a living room fire in an upstairs apartment of a two-story building.
The fire was extinguished before it could spread to other apartments. There was some smoke damage to the hallway outside the apartment and in the adjacent second story apartment.
Both of the residents were able to get out safely and no other residents were affected.
There is no indication that there were working smoke alarms. Two cats died in the fire due to smoke or carbon monoxide poisoning.
While the cause of the fire is still under investigation, it appears to be accidental.
