When firefighters arrived to the Magnolia neighborhood, they received reports a man was “trapped inside, along with a fire involving propane tanks on the back side of the house.” A woman who was in the home “was able to escape on her own,” said the statement.
The man and woman were transported to Harborview Medical Center, said the release. Details on the extent of their injuries were not provided.
“Crews also searched the structure for two missing dogs; unfortunately one was found deceased and the other was not located,” said SFD.
Record rain and snow has inundated the state
Residents living in the Skokomish Valley area of Mason County — about 40 miles southwest of downtown Seattle — are under an evacuation order due to rising water and “imminent flooding,” the county said in a news release.
The rain and snow is expected to stick around for much of the Pacific Northwest through Saturday before conditions alleviate Sunday.
