Child Missing After Muckleshoot House Fire

Posted: Updated:

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.
