Chestnut Fire 5Everett Firefighters made a quick stop of a fire at a house undergoing renovation in north Everett late this afternoon. Assistant Everett Fire Marshal Eric Hicks tells us what they know so far.

At 5:39 p.m. cell phone callers reported smoke coming from the roof of a home located on the 2400 block of Chestnut Street.

The first fire engine arrived within 5 minutes to find grey smoke coming from the rear of the home. They made an aggressive offensive (interior) attack knocking down the fire within 5 minutes. Firefighters used chainsaws to open the roof to vent the fire. The incident commander ordered a search of the house while the fire attack was in progress. The fire was completely controlled in approximately 20 minutes.

Due to a quick response by firefighters the fire was contained to a portion of the attic space. The rest of the home primarily impacted by smoke. The fire is under investigation and there is no estimate of a dollar loss at this time.

Here are a few photos taken by MyEverettNews.com of the firefighters at work.
