    A firefighter surveys the fire damage Wednesday to one of the units at the Cascade West Apartments in Mount Vernon. About 38 units of the complex were burnt or suffered water damage in a fire that started late Tuesday night. The fire displaced about 200 residents and injured five, including a man who was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with burns.

MOUNT VERNON — A police officer is one of five people injured in an apartment fire in Mount Vernon.
City public information officer Shannon Haigh says the officer was arriving at the fire before midnight Tuesday when something exploded and he suffered a minor hand cut.
Three people from the Cascade West apartments were treated for smoke inhalation at Skagit Valley Hospital.
Haigh says a man was found about two hours later and was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with burns to his airway and other parts of the body.
The three-alarm fire caused heavy damage to the top two floors of the three-story building.
About 200 residents have been displaced, and about 75 of them are being sheltered at nearby Skagit Valley College with help from the Red Cross.
