ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

A fire at 9829 44th SW consumed a house and trapped a 51 year old disabled woman in an upstairs bathroom. Her boyfriend and son escaped and, according to them, they were downstairs in a garage working on furniture. The woman was in an upstairs bathroom and was unable to get out and they were unable to reach her.

They said they could hear her banging on the wall for help.

Seattle Fire Department confirmed she did not survive.

Multiple units responded and doused the flames but could not get in since the fire was too intense and push them back. Power lines were down and power to the neighborhood has been cut off by City Light but should be restored in the next few hours as investigators wrap up the scene.
