A family of four – two adults, two children – were displaced from a fire that struck an Auburn four-plex building in the 2800 block of D Street Southeast on Thursday, the Valley Regional Fire Authority reported.

One of those displaced, a man, was transported to MultiCare Auburn Medical Center for possible smoke inhalation.

911 callers reported flames and smoke coming from the two-story building at 12:42 p.m. VRFA firefighters arrived to find a second-floor unit with heavy fire involvement. Fortunately, all residents had evacuated, although a man and a woman from the fire unit had to be evaluated for smoke inhalation.

The American Red Cross has been contacted to assist the displaced family with temporary housing and other needs.

Fire damage was mostly limited to a second-floor unit, although the unit directly below suffered water damage, the VRFA said.

The fire is under investigation.
