SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle Fire Department spokesman says an unattended propane stove being used for baking in a shed caused a fire that destroyed one south Seattle townhouse and damaged two others. No one was hurt.

Spokesman Kyle Moore says the fire started Monday afternoon when flames from the propane stove ignited combustibles in the shed and the propane tank caught fire. Flames then spread to the first townhouse and then to two others.

Moore says the second townhouse was badly damaged and the third sustained heat damage to its siding.
