fireEditor’s update Friday May 10th 6:00 AM: Here is more information from the press release issued late last night by Everett Fire.

At 7:31pm this evening Everett Firefighters responded to a reported house fire in the 2300 block of Harrison Avenue.

Occupants were alerted by smoke alarms and were able to get out of the house with minor injuries. Units arrived to find a fully involved house fire that soon vented through the roof. Firefighters were able to get water on the fire quickly but due to the older balloon frame construction full extinguishment was difficult due to the type of construction.

The fire appears to have started in the lower portion of the house but quickly ran up the flue space in the wall to create an attic fire. After initial search and report that all occupants were out of the house the fire was fought from outside the structure due to instability of the floors and walls in the house.

After knockdown another search was done on the 2nd floor as there were reports of animals inside. Firefighters pulled one young dog out of the house and administered blow by oxygen to the dog. He appeared pale and suffering from shock. He was transported by EFD to an area Veterinary clinic is under their care at this time.

Initial Post 10:30 PM Thursday night: Shortly after 7:30 PM Everett Fire crews were called to the corner of 23rd and Harrison for multiple reports of a house on fire.

Arriving crews found smoke coming from the house and began an exterior attack. The good news is the residents got out safely and there were no injuries.

Crews battled the fire for about an hour and a half before getting it out. Everett Fire Chief Dave DeMarco tells MyEverettNews.com firefighters will be at the house for several more hours looking for hot spots. Summit Avenue is closed at 23rd street and Harrison is also closed at 23rd.

Investigators are also on scene. No word yet on a cause or damage estimate. The Red Cross was called to assist the residents.
