Man injured in duplex fire near Bothell

BOTHELL, Wash. (AP) - Snohomish County firefighters say a man in his 50s was injured Thursday evening in a duplex fire near Bothell.

Snohomish County Fire District 1 spokesperson Leslie Hynes says a sheriff's deputy reached the duplex before fire crews, kicked in a door and pulled the man from the smoke-filled unit.

The man was taken to Swedish/Edmonds Hospital with injuries Hynes described as serious but not life-threatening.

The fire was contained to a small area around a stove top. The neighboring duplex unit was not damaged.
