Firefighters extinguish two Kent apartment fires

Busy afternoon June 24

Puget Sound Fire extinguished two separate apartment fires on June 24 in Kent.

At about 12:34 p.m., firefighters responded to the 400 block of Novak Lane for a fire at the Alderbrook Apartments, according to an email from Puget Sound Fire spokesman Capt. Joe Root. Firefighters saw smoke from the window of a third-floor apartment.

A sprinkler system put out the kitchen fire and the occupants evacuated with no injuries.

At about 2 p.m., Puget Sound Fire responded to an apartment fire at the Silver Springs Apartments in the 22400 block of 88th Ave. S. The first units found a second-floor deck fire extending to the third floor and possibly into the attic.

A quick attack limited the spread of the fire. Nine units responded. Paramedics treated one resident for smoke inhalation. Fire investigators had not determined a cause.
