Woman injured in Christmas day house fire dies | UPDATE

A woman injured in a Tukwila house fire on Christmas night has died.

The Tukwila Fire Department will continue working with Tukwila Police to determine the cause of the fire, according to a Jan. 5 press release from the Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority on behalf of the Tukwila Fire Department.

Firefighters from several south King County fire departments were dispatched to the 15800 block of 42nd Avenue South at about 7 p.m. after neighbors reported smoke and flames coming from a single-story home, according to the media release.

Because of the possibility of someone being inside, firefighters quickly entered the home and found the woman unconscious in a back bedroom, according ot the release. While some firefighters brought the patient outside, others continued working to control the flames and search the rest of the house.

Firefighters and paramedics started CPR on the patient and were able to regain a pulse and transport her to a local hospital. A dog was also rescued from the home.

Firefighters from Tukwila, Puget Sound Fire, Renton Regional Fire Authority, North Highline Fire and Burien Fire responded to the incident. King County Medic One and the Zone 3 Fire Explorers provided medical support and rehab.
