Two people were injured – including a King County Sheriff’s sergeant – in a two-alarm fire that burned an apartment building near SW 156th Street and Ambaum Blvd. SW in Burien (map below) Saturday afternoon, Mar. 13, 2021.

One occupant and a King County Sheriff’s Office sergeant were transported to St. Anne Hospital with minor injuries.

Crews initially reported heavy smoke coming from the roof of the structure, and another report said that someone jumped from the building to escape the fire, which was believed to be on the third floor.
