Edmonds woman hurt in house fire

EDMONDS, Wash. (AP) -- A Snohomish County Fire District 1 spokeswoman says an Edmonds, Washington, woman has been seriously burned in a house fire.

Spokeswoman Leslie Hynes says the woman, believed to be in her 40s, was outside the house when fire crews arrived early Tuesday after neighbors reported the blaze. According to the spokeswoman, firefighters said the woman's burns appeared to be life-threatening. Medics transported her to Harborview Medical Center.

A report on her condition was not available late Tuesday.

No one else was in the house.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined.
