Shoreline apartment fires had accidental causes

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

King County Fire investigators say the causes of two Shoreline apartment fires last weekend were both accidental. 

On Friday night, a room and contents fire in an apartment at N 177th St. started in a charging transformer that was plugged into an electric outlet.

The fire that destroyed three King County Housing Authority units in Richmond Beach is believed to have been caused by an unattended 4 year old playing with an open flame. 

Displaced families in the Richmond Beach fire are being assisted by Seattle Red Cross and the Department of Social and Human Services.
