Police consider this fire suspicious

Everett Police have labeled a couple of fires on Evergreen Way early this morning as suspicious. Here’s the official word from Everett Police Sgt. Robert Goetz…

Everett Police and Fire investigators are looking into the possibility that two early morning fires in the central area of Everett were intentionally set. The first 911 call came in at about 3:44 a.m. from a passerby reporting large flames and lots of smoke coming from the back side of Everett Floral in the 4500 block of Evergreen Way. Police units were the first to arrive and confirmed that the rear of the structure was fully engulfed in flames.

Everett Fire units arrived shortly thereafter and extinguished the blaze. There were no injuries reported in this fire. Dollar loss is still being established.

At about 4:00 a.m. a second fire was discovered about two blocks away in a dumpster. That fire was at the smoldering stage when it was discovered and did not cause any damage beyond the dumpster.

Two Everett police K-9 units were deployed in an effort to locate any persons that may have been associated with the fire. No one was located. Both of the fires are considered suspicious and are being investigated as possible arson.

Evergreen Way from the 4400 block to the 4700 block was closed during the incident until about 7:15 a.m.

If anyone saw anything suspicious in the area of these fires please call the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257 – 8450.

    Thank you for writing this report. I did not know about your website but will be checking with it often. I live near the fire and was trying to find out information. The TV stations and local paper had nothing and I could not find anything about the fire on their sites even later this morning. You had the information however. Thank you!
