7:00am UPDATE: Click photos to enlarge. No injuries but a lot of damage at a mobile home fire in south Everett early Monday morning. Here’s the update so far by Everett Fire Marshal Rick Robinson…Everett Fire Department crews responded at 4:58 a.m. today to a house fire in the 1700 block of 105th Place SE. Arriving crews found a single-story home completely involved in flames. Bystanders reported that the one resident was not home and that no one else lived there. Crews battled the fire from outside and the main body of fire was knocked down. The amount of damage to the home precludes entry for final extinguishment and two crews remain on scene until the fire can be completely extinguished. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
