An Edmonds man was transported to Swedish Edmonds Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries following a Sunday night fire in the clubhouse at Ridge Acres Mobile Home Park on Edmonds Way.

According to South Snohomish County Fire & Rescue spokeswoman Leslie Hynes, firefighters were dispatched at 11:19 p.m. for the fire, located in the 23100 block of Edmonds Way.

Fire was burning in the attic of the two-story building when the first crew arrived, where a portion of the building had been converted to an apartment, Hynes said.

“One man was home at the time of the fire,” she said. “He got out on his own and was treated for smoke inhalation.

The fire caused about $160,000 damage to the clubhouse building, and two nearby sheds and a van sustained heat damage,” Hynes said.

The apartment in the clubhouse was home to a family of five – a couple and their three adult sons. All were away at the time of the fire except for the one son who was transported to the hospital.

Red Cross is assisting the family. Shoreline Fire provided mutual aid. The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire, Hynes said.
