Fire contained at Alderwood Manor four-plex

LYNNWOOD — A two-alarm fire injured one man and displaced 14 people at an Alderwood Manor four-plex on Thursday.

The fire broke out about 11:40 a.m. in the 20400 block of 28th Avenue W., said Leslie Hynes, spokeswoman for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

One man was taken to a local hospital for exposure to smoke and flames. He is expected to survive.

Firefighters responded from throughout south Snohomish County. Crews remained at the scene for several hours working on hot spots.

The building sustained heavy damage. The American Red Cross was helping the people who were displaced.

Investigators believe the man who was injured accidentally started the fire when he was working in the garage. He apparently stumbled and spilled gasoline, which ignited, Hynes said.
