Everett, Everett Fire

Smoke pours from the back of the house and works its way inside.

The Everett Fire Department has been able to keep fire damage minimal for the 4th of July.

Only two fire calls of any consequence and both got a quick response and resolution.

Just before 10:00 PM there was a brush fire in west Everett off 33rd Ave. W.

Hedges and grass caught fire next to a house but crews were able to contain it fairly quickly.

A short while later, around 10:30 PM, a passerby saw smoke coming from the back of a house in the 3800 block of Hoyt.

Arriving fire crews found flames on the back of the house and were able to keep the fire from spreading inside but the house did fill with smoke.

In both cases there were no injuries. No word on the cause of either fire at this time.

Here are a few MyEverettNews.com photos from the house on Hoyt.
