2 injured in explosion in north Seattle

Natural gas leak reported in neighborhood Sunday

ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Two people have been injured in a fire at a north Seattle home that exploded around 6 a.m. Monday and was heard more than a mile away.

Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore told KOMO Radio a man and woman in their 50s have been taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with burns. One of them has life-threatening injuries and the other is serious.

Moore says the home appears to be a total loss. Firefighters are trying to protect two nearby homes from the flames.

Moore says it’s too soon to say if the explosion and fire are related to a natural gas leak that was reported Sunday in the neighborhood.

The fire is visible from Interstate 5.
