Not a lot of fire damage but smoke filled the house.

No injuries or major fire damage but smoke filled a house on Federal Avenue Sunday afternoon resulting in the Red Cross being called out to provide shelter and assistance to two people. Here’s what’s known from Everett Fire Marshal Rick Robinson.

At about 5:56 p.m. on March 8th, 2015, Everett firefighters were dispatched to the 3900 block of Federal Avenue for a report of smoke filling the house. Firefighters arrived and found smoke throughout the residence and quickly discovered an electrical fire in the basement centered on the home’s water heater. That fire was quickly extinguished and crews were checking to ensure the fire hadn’t spread. Two residents in the home were assisted to the outside. Damage to the structure was light, but the Red Cross has been summoned to help the two displaced residents.

A fire investigator is at the house but no official cause or damage estimate yet. Here are some photos taken by
