A garage fire behind a vacant house in the 2100 block of Hoyt was spotted by neighbors who called the Everett Fire Department. The calls came in just before 6:00 PM.

A quick stop was made by firefighters and damage was limited. An Everett fire investigator is looking into the cause of the fire.

Neighbors tell they’ve been chasing squatters out of the garage and empty house over the last several months.

    “chasing squatters out of the garage and empty house over the last several months.” Wow just wow.

      Incredibly some people will claim it’s their right to be in there.

        No one is. Only squatters do. You’re broad brushing again Bourne.

        Of course, the Bernie and socialist mentality have created an atmosphere where “free is good” and working is looked down upon.

        Instead of getting a job at literally anywhere and paying for a plane ticket to a lower cost of living area (Iowa, Wyoming, etc) and working for a better way of life, these liberals squat and damage property. Unreal.

        a simple rule of thumb, if you are not paying for it, it probably is not yours.
