Lakewood, WA — At approximately 8:30 p.m. on Monday evening, the Lakewood Fire Department responded to 88th Street SW for a possible residential fire with a victim inside. A friend of the resident called 911 because he said his friend was “not acting right” and there was smoke coming from the home.
Engine 21 was the first on scene to find the home filled with smoke and the man inside, with the door locked. Crews forced the door open and found food burning on the stove and the man nearly unconscious. Lakewood paramedics treated the man at the scene.
