An adult male was rescued, treated, and transported to a local hospital this morning after his mobile home caught fire in the 15400 block of SE 272 Street, Kent, Washington.
Neighbors first reported the fire at 7:34 AM, and tried unsuccessfully to determine if anyone was home. When firefighters from Puget Sound Fire and Fire District 44 arrived, they were informed that the resident was possibly inside.
The first crews went immediately into the home, found the patient, and brought him outside for medical treatment. CPR was performed and a heartbeat was regained. King County Medic One transported the patient off the scene.
The fire caused extensive heat and smoke damage throughout the double-wide mobile home and is currently under investigation.
