A man in his 50s was injured in a duplex fire southwest of Mill Creek on Thursday evening, February 13, 2014.
A resident in the neighboring duplex unit reported the fire about 5:10 p.m. in the 19900 block of Filbert Road in unincorporated Snohomish County. The neighbor saw smoke coming from the back of the unit where the man lived.
A Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputy arrived at the scene before firefighters and kicked in the door and pulled the man from the smoke-filled unit. Firefighters transported the man to Swedish/Edmonds Hospital. His injuries were serious, but did not appear to be life-threatening.
Firefighters from Fire Districts 1 and 7, Bothell, and Lynnwood responded to the fire and kept the fire contained to a small area around the stove top. The neighboring duplex unit was not damaged.
