EDMONDS — A woman and her adult son were seriously injured in a house fire early Saturday morning in the Meadowdale neighborhood, according to South County Fire.
Firefighters responded around 2:15 a.m. to a two-story house in the 5800 block of 152nd Street SW. By then, much of the house was in flames.
The woman and man were outside when South County Fire crews arrived. They were transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for burns and smoke inhalation.
Two other women and another man were at the house as well. They didn’t suffer any injuries.
One of the women, who is the homeowner, said her dog alerted her and she escaped through a first-floor window and didn’t suffer any injuries. Her dog also safely got out.
The other man and woman, a couple living at the house, got out through a door. According to the news release, the man saw the injured woman on the roof, calling for help, after having gotten out through a second-story window. He helped her down to the ground.
Firefighters battled the blaze for about an hour. The house is a total loss, according to the news release. Red Cross is assisting the displaced residents.
The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office was still investigating the cause of the fire on Saturday morning.
