AUBURN, Wash. (AP) - A young child is missing and three other people have been injured in a house fire on the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation near Auburn.
A neighbor reported the fire just before 6 a.m. Thursday. Firefighters put it out quickly, but the home is severely damaged.
King County Fire District 44 spokesman Tim Perciful told KOMO-TV a 19-year-old man was taken to Auburn Medical Center, and a 4-year-old and 10-year-old were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle to be treated for smoke inhalation and burns.
KIRO-TV reports a younger child was trapped in the house.
KCPQ-TV reports the 19-year-old apparently was taking care of the younger children.
