Sprinklers Stop Fire At Hopeworks Station Apartments


Sprinklers kept damage to a minimum in a previous fire back in January of 2021.

A fire in a fourth-floor room at Hopeworks Station Apartments in the 3300 block of Broadway in Everett was quickly extinguished by the building’s sprinkler system.

The fire alarm began sounding just before 3:30 AM. Arriving Everett Fire crews found the sprinkler system activated and located the fourth-floor unit where the fire had been extinguished.

Everett Police blocked off Broadway between 33rd and 34th while Firefighters shut off the sprinklers and worked to contain water damage. There were no reports of injuries.

A fire investigator has been called to the scene to determine the cause of the fire.

It was the second time in four hours that a sprinkler system limited the damage to a single unit in an apartment fire in Everett, Washington.

Everett Police Continue To Expand Catalytic Converter Anti-Theft Program

The Everett Police Department is partnering with students from Sno-Isle Tech Skills Center in another round of engraving identity numbers on catalytic converters. It’s a first-come, first-served event this Saturday. Here’s what you need to know from the Everett Police Department.

Once your ID number is recorded you receive this sticker for your car.

The VIN number is engraved on the Catalytic Converter which then receives a coat of red paint.

As catalytic converter thefts continue, Everett Police Department remains dedicated to reducing this crime for our residents through arrests and prevention.

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Sno-Isle Tech and the National Insurance Crime Bureau to have another free Project Cat Con ID event!

Sno-Isle tech’s Automotive Technology students will engrave your catalytic converter for free! The school’s Criminal Justice students will be on hand to help with traffic control.

No appointment necessary, it is a first come first serve event. We hope to see you there!

Date: January 29, 2022
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Location: Sno-Isle Tech, 9001 Airport Rd, Everett WA, 98204.
Masks are required at all times on campus, so remember to bring yours!

Project CATCON ID was created by Everett Police Department to promote theft prevention techniques for Everett residents by asking vehicle owners to engrave the last 8 digits of their vehicle identification number (VIN) on the catalytic converter and highlight it with high temperature paint. If your converter is stolen and reported it can be tracked back to the owner – if recovered – to help solve crimes. For other ways to protect your vehicle, view our catalytic converter theft prevention sheet.

Alaska Air Cancels Flights Out Of Paine Field Due To Fog And 5G Concerns


Alaska is making cancellations and accommodations as fog and 5G cell service limit the type of planes that can fly out of Paine Field. The FAA has not approved the Embraer E175 pictured here.

The folks at Propeller Airports who operate the passenger terminal at Paine Field in Everett, Washington posted the following to social media Monday after all Alaska Air Flights were cancelled at the airport. (Here’s a link to an explanation from Alaska Air)

Unfortunately, our hometown carrier has had to cancel flights due to 5G and weather. Please check your flight status with Alaska Air before heading out to Paine Field this week.

This is out of our control, and we are as frustrated as you are.

Be assured that we are working with the appropriate authorities on local and federal levels, along with our partners at Snohomish County, to assist in bringing this situation to a resolution as soon as possible.

Here’s the Advisory and additional information from Alaska Airlines

Everett – Paine Field (PAE) fog waiver

Flights to/from Everett – Paine Field (PAE) may be delayed or canceled due to fog in Western Washington. FAA-issued flight restrictions due to the new 5G C-Band signal have limited our ability to land certain aircraft in low visibility. In a nutshell, the new 5G C-band, when deployed within two miles of an airport, interferes with vital flight technology used to navigate aircraft during challenging weather and low visibility. As a result, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued flight restrictions that limit the ability of some aircraft to land in certain weather conditions.  Please check your flight status before leaving for the airport.

We are offering a flexible travel policy if you would like to change or cancel your flight.

Change Flight

  • If you rebook your flight with the same origin and destination and travel between now and January 31, 2022, there is no change in the original fare you paid. You may also choose to fly in/out of Seattle (SEA) instead of Everett (PAE). Additional taxes may apply.
  • Due to continued fog, a replacement flight from Everett may not be available for the next 2-3 days.

Cancel Flight

    • If you purchased a refundable ticket, or your flight has been canceled, you can request a full refund. If your refund request does not successfully go through, please call us next week for assistance when wait times are anticipated to decrease.
    • If you purchased a non-refundable ticket, including a Saver fare, you can receive future travel credit for your canceled flight. You will then have a year to use that credit.

Here are the dates currently affected:

Travel To/From Paine field (PAE) Tickets Purchased On / Before January 24, 2022

Original Travel Dates
January 24, 2022 – January 27, 2022

New Travel Dates
January 24, 2022 – January 31, 2022

Exception Policy
We will waive the difference in the price of the ticket if the new travel is booked with the same origin and destination, in the same cabin and travel is completed during the new travel dates listed above. You may also choose to fly in/out of Seattle (SEA) instead of Everett (PAE). Additional taxes may apply.

If you prefer not to travel, you may cancel your ticket and deposit the ticket value to your My Wallet account for travel at a future date. If you used a companion fare discount for travel canceled under this waiver, contact us for a replacement.

Tickets must be exchanged or canceled prior to the departure of your original flight. Rebook your flight or cancel your trip online.

This waiver is valid only for tickets issued by Alaska Airlines. Tickets can be identified by a 13-digit ticket number beginning with Alaska Airlines code “027”. Tickets issued by other airlines with a different carrier code (ticket numbers not beginning with “027”) are subject to the waiver policy of other airline.

These handsome fellas are calm, sweet and serious snackers. These two brothers are good buddies and must be adopted as a bonded pair, and each have their own sweet personality to bring your family double the joy. Birch is the more confident one, leads the pack, loves to explore and meet new people, and will happily hop over to see what you are snacking on. Bramble is a little more reserved, but won’t say no to a lettuce snack. They are both quickly learning litter box manners, enjoy space to free-roam and are getting comfortable around people of all sizes.
