A south Everett apartment fire displaced a woman and took the life of her cat Monday night.

Everett Fire units were called to the Trailside Apartments off Bruskrud Road shortly after 6:30 PM.

The fire was reported to be in the kitchen of a ground floor apartment and the resident was out safely.

Engine 7 was the first Everett Fire Truck to arrive and crews were able to get a good knockdown. In addition to Everett Fire, District 1 provided mutual aid.

The fire did spread up a vent and got into the roof of the building but crews were able to open the roof and also hit it from the attic access to quickly contain it to a very small area.

The woman who lived in the apartment will be staying with friends tonight.

An Everett Fire Investigator is working to determine the cause and a damage amount. No other residents were displaced.
