Ranger Marcus Taylor told KOMO that he heard kids screaming and car horns about 4 a.m. Monday and saw flames at a nearby apartment building.
He rushed over and was told someone was still on the top floor of the two-story building. Taylor heard rustling, kicked in a sliding glass door and told residents to come to the sound of his voice. All escaped.
Taylor was treated for cuts to his right leg. A woman was treated for smoke inhalation. Nineteen people were displaced by the fire.
Four units were destroyed or heavily damaged.
West Pierce Fire and Rescue spokeswoman Hallie McCurdy told The News Tribune that the damage estimate is $400,000.
