One woman was died and another woman displaced in a fire that took place in the upper unit bedroom of an apartment in the 7500 block of 24th S.W. on April. 15. The 911 call went out at 4:23 am for a fire in the apartments located just south of the Home Depot store in West Seattle.

The fire was contained to the bedroom and the woman was found on the floor after firefighters overcame heavy smoke, "so thick they could not see their hands in front of their face," according to Kyle Moore Seattle Fire Dept. spokesperson.

The fire was quickly contained and confined to the single apartment but a neighbor was displaced due to smoke and water damage.

The fire is under investigation at this time and a damage estimate is expected later.
