There are 13 apartments in the upper floors of the building and below them are Hat Trick Pizza and Spare Room Vintage Market. At least 20 people were being assisted by the Red Cross and busses were brought to the scene to keep residents warm. Prior to the busses residents were let into the lobby of Comcast Arena across the street.
At this early stage no injures have been reported but it is not known if firefighters were able to check all the units before they had to pull out. Power to a major portion of downtown Everett has been cut off due to major power lines running thru the fire scene.
