VIDEO: Four King County Sheriff’s Office deputies were taken to the hospital after rushing into a burning apartment complex in Shoreline to rescue residents trapped inside.
The 2-alarm fire started around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Linden Highlands Apartments, located on the 17500 block of Linden Avenue North. The apartment complex is across the street from Shorewood High School. The King County Sheriff’s Office was the first agency to respond, and deputies ran inside the burning building to help anyone trapped inside. Deputies also rescued one cat.
“We applaud them for their great work,” said Sgt. Tim Meyer, with the King County Sheriff’s Office. “Really the heroism. They were able to go through, help evacuate the buildings and get community members rescued."
