Seattle, Washington (March 18, 2019) – A person was found dead by firefighters when they responded to a two-alarm fire in 1400 Block, East Yesler Way. The firefighting crews believed the victim was inside the unit where the fire started.
The firefighters were called just before 12:30 am Monday, and flames were visible when the crews arrived. The fire had consumed parts of the building when the body was found. The investigation is still ongoing.
The US Fire Administration has recorded 15 home fire fatalities this year within Washington. Statistics from the NFPA have recorded that cooking equipment were the leading cause of home structure fires, home fire injuries, as well as being the second leading case of home fire deaths. Additionally, smoking materials are the leading case of home fire deaths, though it isn’t always the case every year. Everyone should exercise caution, especially with the unusually warm temperatures that the region has been seeing lately. Always handle fire with wariness and see to it that fires are always extinguished after use. Remember also to assess the area where fire is going to be used and see to it that complete fire safety is practiced at all times.
