No injuries but 8 people are being helped by the Red Cross after an apartment fire early this morning.

About 12:15 AM Everett fire crews were dispatched to the 8300 block of 11th Drive West in south Everett.

Fire was reported coming from the deck of a small apartment building.

As the first engine company arrived they could see flames coming from the roof and called for a second alarm.

Firefighters from Mukilteo and District 1 provided mutual aid to Everett Firefighters who were able to contain the fire to the attic and roof.

Four units in the building did suffer smoke and water damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. No damage estimate was available.
