One man was injured in a fire that destroyed a home in the Eastmont neighborhood east of Everett tonight.

Fire dispatchers received multiple 911 calls around 7:45 p.m. reporting smoke and flames coming from a house in the 2900 block of 89th Street SW. The split-entry house was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, according to Leslie Hynes, public information officer for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

The injured man was transported by medics to an area hospital. His injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. No one else was injured.

Firefighters from Fire Districts 1 and 7, Everett and Lynnwood responded. Fire conditions were too dangerous for firefighters to enter the house so they had to attack the fire from outside. The roof and upper floor of the house collapsed. The house is a total loss.

The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the fire and does not expect to have a cause tonight.

At least three people – two men and a woman – were displaced by the fire. Support 7 and the Red Cross were called to assist.

Editor’s Update 9:20 PM: Fire District 1 says the house was in the 2900 block of 89th Street SE. One man suffered non-life threatening injuries. The house is a total loss.
