One person was found dead in a two-alarm apartment fire overnight in a Catholic Housing Services apartment building at 14th and E Yesler.
Seattle Fire was called to the scene around 12:30 AM Monday and found a second story unit in the 1900-built, 34-unit building fully ablaze.
Firefighters quickly brought the fire under control before flames could spread beyond the unit or to the building to the south.
SFD says the blaze was mostly contained to the unit where the body was found. The Medical Examiner was called to the scene and will handle determination of a cause of death and identification of the victim.
Four units in the building were not able to be reoccupied overnight, Seattle Fire said, and Red Cross was requested to assist the victims.
Catholic Housing Services operates the building as part of its homeless, low-income and special needs housing properties. The building has served as housing for the elderly.
Seattle Fire is conducting an investigation into what caused the blaze.
UPDATE: Investigators have ruled the cause of the fire as undetermined pending autopsy results, Seattle Fire says.
Total estimated loss was estimated at $295,000.
