Fire damages were mostly contained to one unit but smoke and water damage did affect about a half dozen units after a fire at Casino Mini Storage today.

The fire was reported about 12:30 this afternoon in the 100 block of East Casino Road across from Fred Meyer.

Arriving fire crews found smoke coming out of a couple of units in the “G” building.

They were able to pull burning material out of one unit. The one next to it was empty.

It appeared the fire may have extended into the attic area of the building and Everett firefighters had to cut some holes in the roof to vent the smoke and check for extension.

Everett Fire Marshal Eric Hicks tells MyEverettNews.com the investigation into what started the fire in the one unit is under investigation.

No damage estimate was available.

Here are some MyEverettNews.com photos from the scene.
