No one was reportedly injured in a fire at a three-story condo building in the 5500 block of 240th Street Southwest in Mountlake Terrace Sunday. About 35 firefighters from Fire District 1, Lynnwood and Shoreline responded to the two-alarm blaze around 5 p.m.
“The first units on scene reported seeing heavy fire coming out of one up the upper-story windows,” said District 1 Assistant Fire Chief Mark Correira. The fire caused a portion of the roof to collapse and there was heavy damage throughout the east-end unit of the building.
Firefighters were able to escape the building before the roof collapsed, Correira said.
The Red Cross and Support 7 assistance organizations were on scene to help any displaced residents of the building.
Firefighters were expected to be at the site of the fire through the night. There was no immediate report on the cause of the fire or the monetary damage to the building.
