SOUTH SEATTLE, Wash. —
An early morning fire in South Seattle on Thursday left one home severely damaged. One man was rescued by fire officials from the roof.
No injuries were sustained.
The Seattle Fire Department responded to the home on South Graham Street just after 6:00 a.m., and flames were still coming from the front of the house.
Forcible entry was made, and heavy fire extended into the upper story of the home.
Officials estimated the damage at $50,000. An investigation determined the cause of the fire to be accidental — an overheated electrical cord.
