The Yakima Fire Department (YFD) responded to an apartment fire on Saturday night that displaced eight people and sent another to the hospital for smoke inhalation. No other injuries have been reported at this time.
Yakima firefighters were called to the 500-block of North 6th St around 8:10 p.m. on Saturday, February 13. The YFD Battalion Chief unit arrived and quickly identified smoke stemming from the second floor of an apartment complex with six units in total.
The firefighters quickly evacuated everyone from inside of the burning building, leaving a total of eight people displaced.
No burns or injuries were reported by local authorities, but the occupant of the apartment where the fire started was brought to a nearby hospital after inhaling an excessive amount of smoke in a short amount of time. She was reportedly treated by medical healthcare professionals and promptly released.
