No one was injured in a house fire that displaced a family of seven from their home in the Eastmont neighborhood in unincorporated Everett on March 14.

A resident reported the fire around 8:50 a.m. at a two-story house in the 2600 block of Del Campo Drive. “No one was in the home at the time. The residents were visiting relatives at a home across the street when they spotted smoke coming from their own home and called 911,” said Leslie Hynes, South County Fire public information officer.

Responding firefighters could see a column of black smoke from at least a mile away as they approached. The house was already engulfed in flames when the first crew arrived. More than 25 firefighters from South County Fire and Everett Fire Department responded. Heavy fire conditions made it unsafe for firefighters to enter the house, so they attacked the fire from outside. It took about 50 minutes to get the fire under control.

Damage to the house is extensive. Red Cross is assisting the displaced family of four adults and three children.

The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating to determine where and how the fire started.
