One person was injured Monday night in a house fire east of College Avenue in central Everett.

Firefighters were called to the home after flames broke out around 8 PM.

The flames spread from an area outside of the house into the structure. While the two people there were able to get out one person was transported to the hospital by medics.

Flames were coming from the top of the home as Everett Fire crews arrived.

Crews got a good knock down on the fire after venting the roof but had to spend a good amount of time hitting hot spots and working on overhaul.

An investigator has been called to the scene but no early word yet on the severity of injuries or the cause of the fire.

Editor’s Update Tuesday December 1, 4:30 PM. Everett Fire issued the following release about the fire.

– Firefighters were dispatched at 7:56 p.m. on Monday evening to a residential structure fire at the 5000 block of Sperry Lane in central Everett. A resident, in his 60’s, is in critical condition for burns he received in the fire.
Reportedly, the male homeowner was welding outside in a space between the house and the garage when some sparks ignited some nearby combustible sources, which started the fire and then got out of control. Firefighters arrived on the scene to find a working house fire with flames coming from the roof. Both homeowners self-evacuated from the residence.
While firefighters worked to control the blaze, Everett Police assisted the injured homeowner in meeting up with fire and medical personnel, who provided medical attention to the burned victim at the scene and then transported him to Harborview Medical Center. Fire crews remained on the scene for several hours after the fire was extinguished to monitor the incident and address any hotspots.
An Everett Fire Investigator was called to the scene. The loss of the fire is estimated at $300K
