Two people, including a firefighter, hurt as flames destroy Puyallup home

Two people including a firefighter were treated for injuries after a fire destroyed a home overnight. Flames and smoke filled the house located on the 2200 block of South Meridian. A neighbor captured video of the fire as the smoke poured from the top floor. “If you looked at it you could just see that it looked like the house was going to collapse any second and all you could see were flames starting to go over the house,” said Sydnee O’Laughlin, witness.
