Crews debrief after the fire.

Just as the snow was picking up about 1:45 Friday afternoon came in a report of a house fire on 62nd Street SE in the Glacier View Neighborhood.

Everett Fire crews responded with Engine 5 first on scene.

There were two people in the house who escaped with their pets and were not injured.

Flames were coming out a back bedroom window and smoke was pouring from the eaves as the first crew entered.

They were able to get a good stop on the fire and contained it to a back bedroom, saving the house.

Investigators are on scene and no word yet on a cause or damage estimate.

Here are some photos of the scene. Click photo to enlarge.

One personal observation. People were trying to drive down the same streets as fire crews were arriving creating a very dangerous situation. Please if you see a fire truck with lights on stay two blocks away, especially in this weather. (LD)
