There were no injuries but a duplex fire on 107th street SW just south of the Everett city limits left four people needing assistance from the Red Cross today.

According to Leslie Hynes of Fire District 1 the fire was called in around 2:00 PM.

Responding crews reported seeing smoke as they approached.

City of Everett Fire crews provided mutual aid to District 1.

On arrival, firefighters found one half of the duplex along with a car in front fully involved.

There were people in both sides of the duplex at the time of the fire and all made it out safely.

District 1 firefighters were also able to reunite a cat with its owner.

Hynes says damage is estimated at $180,000.00.

The duplex fire started when oil heating in a pan on the stovetop ignited

    weakest link theory. you are at the mercy of the dumbest person in the apt building. Like the idiot boiling his own urine, to extract meth.

    That’s why I would never live in a duplex. No matter how careful you are, you can’t control the yahoo next door.
