Fire crews from Paine Field, Boeing, Everett and South Snohomish were all called to the Boeing modification center on 112th SW at the south end of Paine Field Tuesday night.

They were called after smoke was spotted and a burning smell reported in a storage building in an area where crews work on the 767 tanker project.

Workers were evacuated from the immediate area while fire crews checked for the problem as smoke poured out a vent at one end of the building.

A crew from South Snohomish Fire used a ladder truck to check the roof while Boeing Engine 3 checked the interior.

After a time it was determined that the issue was with the HVAC system and fire crews were given the all-clear to return.

There were no injuries and work went on inside the modification center itself while firefighters worked outside.

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