Everett, Everett Fire

This old building was damaged. No word if it was the cause of the brush fire or if the brush fire got to it.

District 7 was the responding agency and upgraded to two alarms as the wind shifted.

There have been a bunch of brush in and around Everett today. The largest was southeast of Everett just east of the old buffalo farm on 132nd and 29th SE across from Penny Creek Elementary.

An abandoned building burned as did surrounding brush but crews from District 7 which serves the Mill Creek area called and upgraded to two alarms and were able to position supporting crews to keep the fire from spreading to nearby homes and apartments.

Construction crews also used their heavy equipment to make a fire line for firefighters to slow the spread of the burning brush. There were no injures but 132nd SE was shut down for a couple of hours while crews worked to contain the fire.

The fire along the interurban trail was visible from Broadway

Everett Fire crews handled several small brush fires off the interurban trail and other locations Friday afternoon. None caused any major damage and an investigator is looking to see if they may be related. Good news is there were no injuries associated with the fires.
