It was a fast stop on a basement fire of a home in the 3800 block of Colby early Tuesday morning.

Shortly after 2:30 AM Everett Fire crews were called to the home after a report of smoke filling the house.

Firefighters from Engine 1 located a fire in a basement wall and quickly got it out.

Other crews searched the house for extension.

A couple living in the house got out safely and firefighters were able to reunite them with their dog.

No injuries and fire damage was limited to the basement along with some smoke damage upstairs.

An Everett Fire Investigator is at the house to try and determine the cause.

    By the looks of that basement I think Thomas Edison might have done the wiring.

    Why is there never a cause for all these house fires? I would like to know what starts these things…
