Fire Investigators are calling an overnight fatal fire in South Park undetermined pending autopsy results. They spent the day sifting through the charred remains of a garage that caught fire and spread to the attached home causing $310,000 in damage.
Firefighters responded to the fire at 503 S. Trenton Street just after 8:20 p.m. on Monday night. When they arrived on scene, they found heavy smoke and flames had extended from a garage up into the attic of a two story house. A neighbor called 911 and alerted six family members inside the house. They got out safely but fire investigators discovered what is believed to be the body of a family member in the burned out garage.
More than 50 Seattle Firefighters worked to control the blaze.
