A Friday afternoon house fire in Rose Village has been ruled accidental, caused by a multi-plug electrical adapter, a Vancouver Fire Department official said Saturday.

The name of a woman who was saved from the burning home was being withheld to ensure her family members were notified first, Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli said.

The woman was being treated Saturday in the burn center at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, Scarpelli said, adding that nurses there “felt positive about her prognosis.”

Three neighbors were credited with rescuing the woman from the house at 1105 E. 29th St., where the fire was reported shortly after 3 p.m.

According to The Columbian’s archives, the same house caught fire twice before — once in December 2012 and again in February 2015. In both fires, a woman and multiple dogs escaped.
