Fire that broke out in a third story apartment was quickly stopped by the sprinkler system at the Camelot Apartments in south Everett Sunday afternoon.

Just before 6:00 PM fire alarms sounded and multiple sprinkler heads were activated in a third floor apartment and hallway.

Arriving crews from Everett Fire and mutual aid from South County Fire arrived to people evacuating the building with some smoke on the third floor.

The fire that had started in a third floor unit was out and apartments directly below that unit suffered water damage.

Three families were being assisted with temporary housing from the Snohomish County Chapter of the American Red Cross.

An Everett Fire Investigator is on site working to determine the cause of the fire. There were no injuries.

A damaged estimate was not available at the time of this writing.
