Afternoon commuters in downtown Everett may have been wondering about the smoke plume east of Broadway around 5:00 PM.

It was a house fire in the 2400 block of Everett Avenue.

The fire damaged the upper floor of the house with smoke and water damage leaving it uninhabitable for multiple residents. It was an old house divided into apartments.

Everett Firefighters managed to get a good knockdown on the fire and had it our within about 15 minutes.

The Red Cross is helping the residents find a place to stay tonight and an Everett Fire investigator is on scene trying to determine the cause.

No damage estimate was available but the good news is there were no injuries.

Everett Avenue was closed between Virginia and Cedar streets for about an hour and a half.
