Kent house fire sends one man to hospital
A man was sent to a hospital with burns and smoke inhalation suffered during a Kent house fire Sunday night in the 26300 block of 108th Avenue Southeast.
Firefighters from the Kent Fire Department Regional Fire Authority were dispatched to the fire at 8:23 p.m. and found the man in the back yard of the single-story house, according to a Kent Fire Department media release. While one crew attended to the patient, the other crews entered the house to extinguish the flames.
Firefighters controlled the fire in about 20 minutes, but there was smoke and heat damage throughout the house.
Concerned that there may have been more people home at the time of the fire, careful searches were conducted to check for other victims. Those searches found no additional people.
Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the fire.
