A woman was injured in a Tukwila house fire on Christmas night.
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 a 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.
A Tukwila Fire Department investigator is working to determine the cause of the fire.
