No one was injured in a fire that caused more than $160,000 damage to an unoccupied home east of Everett this afternoon.

Neighbors reported black smoke coming from the back of the two-story house in the 11400 block of 31st Ave. SE near Silver Lake just before 3 p.m. The back of the house was in flames when firefighters arrived and there was fire in the attic, said Leslie Hynes, public information officer for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

No one was inside the house. “The homeowners moved out about a month ago and had few belongings left in the house,” Hynes said.

Crews from Fire Districts 1 and 7 responded and had the fire under control in about 15 minutes.

The homeowners have insurance. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office.
