Stubborn Attic Fire Keeps Everett Firefighters Busy

June 1, 2017

Everett Fire

About 3:20 this morning Everett Fire crews responded to a house fire in the 4500 block of Rucker. Heavy smoke was coming from the house as the first firefighters arrived. They were able to get a good knockdown on the fire but then spent the next hour and a half working on fire that had made its way into the attic. The house was unoccupied and there were no injuries. No word yet on the cause of the fire or a damage estimate. Here are a few photos of the scene this morning. Click photo to enlarge.
