LYNNWOOD, Wash., December 24, 2022—Today, crews from South County Fire, Everett Fire, Northshore and Shoreline responded to a late morning fatal townhome fire at 6707 196th St SW in Lynnwood that has left one person dead, two injured, and more than 20 residents displaced.
A man and a boy escaped the fire before firefighters arrived. Both had serious injuries and were transported by ambulance to Harborview Medical Center, where they are now in stable condition. No one else was injured.
The fire damaged three apartments in an eight-unit building and it took crews about an hour to get the fire under control.
Dispatchers received 911 calls around 10:51 a.m. this morning reporting a two-alarm fire at the same multifamily dwelling of a deadly fire in 2019 that killed two young children – Mardoqueo,7, and Victoria Jimenez-Lopez, 15.
