Kent fire displaces family of 3

Three people were displaced Friday morning after a fire damaged their Kent apartment.

Firefighters were called about 9 a.m. to the 4700 block of South 272nd Street and found smoke coming from a unit on the bottom floor.

Property managers used fire extinguishers to get the blaze under control before crews arrived so flames were quickly doused.

There was little damage to the apartment and none to other units because of how quickly the fire was put out, Capt. Kyle Ohashi said.

Investigators said the cause was a kitchen fire.
