For the Reporter

Four people have been displaced following a SeaTac house fire in the 3400 block of South 191 Street on Tuesday.

Three of the people were home at the time of the fire and all were able to escape safely, Kent fire officials said.

When firefighters from the Kent Fire Department RFA arrived, they found the entire second floor of the house engulfed in flames. Initial units quickly kept the fire from spreading to nearby houses and shrubs.

Despite getting water on the flames quickly, much of the second floor was gutted by the fire.

In addition to the Kent Fire Department RFA, firefighters from South King Fire and Rescue, and the Burien FD responded. Zone 3 Fire Explorers and King County Medic One provided rehabilitation.

There were no reports of injuries, and the Red Cross was called in to help the family.

The fire is under investigation.
