2 injured, 2 displaced after fire at Edmonds senior housing complex

Two people were injured and two residents were displaced after a Thursday night fire at an Edmonds senior housing complex.

According to South Snohomish County Fire, crews were dispatched to the three-story apartment building in the 22700 block of 76th Street Southwest just before 8:15 p.m. for a fire in a unit on the second floor.

South County Fire said two residents were exposed to smoke and were taken to Swedish Edmonds hospital with non-life-threatening conditions.

A third resident was evaluated and treated by firefighters at the scene.

The fire department said the building’s sprinkler system kept the flames under control until crews arrived. Fire damage was contained to the kitchen of the second-floor unit, but a unit below has water damage.

The two residents who were displaced are being assisted by Support 7 and Red Cross.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
