Several people were rescued by ladder from an apartment fire in Seattle’s Rainier Beach neighborhood early Wednesday, while one person jumped from a balcony to escape, according to the Seattle Fire Department.
The man who jumped from the balcony of the three-story complex in the 4800 block of South Henderson Street was taken to a hospital in stable condition, the Fire Department said on Twitter.
The conditions of the residents rescued by ladder were not immediately released.
The Fire Department said the American Red Cross was working to assist residents displaced from the building.
The cause of the two-alarm fire was determined to be accidental, and the estimated loss is $130,000, according to the Fire Department. The fire left three units in the affected building uninhabitable.
