BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A fire badly damaged an apartment and displaced a Bellingham family over the weekend.

The fire broke out in the kitchen of a unit in the Brookside Apartments on Woburn on Saturday after a stove burner was left on too long.

No one was in the apartment at the time of the fire.

The father told KGMI that he didn’t know there was a fire until he opened the apartment door and found it filled with black smoke.

The family cat had to be treated with oxygen, but is otherwise fine.

No one else was injured.

 

The Mount Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross is providing the family with shelter and supplies.
