EDMONDS, Wash. (AP) - A 67-year-old man was critically injured when a fire broke out Sunday morning in his apartment in Edmonds north of Seattle.
Snohomish County fire spokeswoman Leslie Hynes says the man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with injuries described as life-threatening.
Other residents in the two-story, five-unit building were not hurt. Neighbors reported the fire at about 8:15 a.m.
Fire investigators could not determine the exact cause of the fire, but could not rule out smoking or combustible items placed too close to the stovetop.
