A resident at the Washington Oakes Retirement Community in north Everett was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center after a stove top fire Friday night. Everett Fire Marshal Rick Robinson tells that fire alarms sounded around 7:00pm. Arriving fire crews found a person in an apartment, apparently asleep, with burning food on the stove. That person was taken from the apartment by medics and sent to Providence Regional Medical Center to be checked for smoke inhalation. There was no one else in the apartment. Crews spent some time ejecting smoke from the apartment and the hallways of the building. There were no other injuries and no residents were displaced.

    Glad that they caught the fire in time before it spread out into the bldg. Thats a lot of seniors that could have been out in the cold.
