The fire burned through electrical connections to at least one business.

A fire behind a strip mall at 7601 Evergreen Way damaged three businesses this morning.

Around 7 AM one of the business owners noticed his power out. He went out back to check and found two dumpsters on fire.

Smoke was rising from the back of the building as Everett Fire crews arrived and a second alarm was briefly called and then cancelled.

Crews were able to quickly get the dumpster fires out but had to spend a fair amount of time removing the flashing from the roof on the back side of the building and making sure the fire did not extend inside the building or into the roof.

Three units in the strip mall suffered smoke and water damage.

Assistant Everett Fire Marshal Steve Goforth tells MyEverettews.com the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Here are a few MyEverettNews.com photos from the scene.
