Woman dies in mobile home fire in SeaTac Tuesday


Firefighters at a two-alarm mobile home fire found a deceased woman inside on Tuesday (April 3) after responding to the 18100 block of 36 Place South in SeaTac (map below).

The first report of the fire came from a person inside the double-wide mobile home at 1:08 p.m. That person was able to get out safely, but reported that a second adult female was not able to escape.

When firefighters arrived from Puget Sound Fire, the Port of Seattle, Tukwila, and Burien, they found the home with flames coming from the roof and almost fully engulfed. Although they were able to extinguish the fire quickly and keep it from spreading to other nearby residences, the mobile home was heavily damaged.

The person who was able to escape was treated by King County Medic One and transported to a local hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries.

Puget Sound Fire investigators are on scene to determine the cause of the fire. The King County Medical Examiner has been notified and will work with the investigators to determine the cause of death and provide positive identification of the deceased.

The Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority provides fire and emergency medical services to the City of SeaTac and has done so since 2014.
