South County Fire has released additional information about the two juveniles who died in a fire that engulfed a Lynnwood townhouse Sunday.
The victims found in the Lynnwood Townhouse apartments, in the 6700 block 196th Street Southwest, were siblings — a 15-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy — from Shoreline, said South County Fire spokesperson Leslie Hynes. The two were visiting an adult male relative who lived in the complex with a woman and her 11-year-old son. The 11-year-old was reported to have escaped the fire but suffered from smoke inhalation. He was treated and released Sunday from Swedish Medical Hospital.
The boy, along with the woman and the man related to the two siblings, were outside the townhome when firefighters arrived, Hynes said. Both were uninjured.
