SEATTLE, WA – Three people were taken to the hospital after an RV caught fire in the West Woodland area this morning, according to KOMO News.
The incident occurred near the intersection of NW 43rd Street and Leary Way NW at about 9:30 a.m., when a blue-and-white RV caught fire, likely due to either candles or the presence of combustibles near a heater.
One woman was taken to the hospital with severe, life-threatening injuries, and a man was taken in for treatment of non-critical wounds.
A third patient was reportedly taken to the hospital by a good Samaritan at the scene.
The identities of the victims were not immediately released.
Photos from the scene showed the back roof and wall were destroyed in the blaze.
No further details are available at this time.
