A Renton man, 32, was found dead inside his home after it caught fire Sunday afternoon.
The Renton Regional Fire Authority responded to a fire in the 1600 block of Pierce Avenue Southeast shortly after 2 p.m. They suppressed the fire quickly, and it was contained mostly to one room of the house.
The fire authority had not announced the fire’s cause by Sunday evening. Renton police officers and detectives were sent to the scene, and the King County Medical Examiner’s Office will examine the body for the cause of death.
A second person was inside the house and was rescued, without injuries. Two other roommates were not home at the time of the fire, according to Renton police Cmdr. Chandler Swain.
