Editor’s Update 1:00 PM, Everett Fire released the following press release:

Two firefighters from Engine 2 exit the fire unit.

Dispatchers received multiple 911 calls around 9:15 a.m. reporting a fire in one of the units at Cascadian Apartments at 2232 12th St. Arriving fire crews found a working fire in one of the units and quickly upgraded the response to a second alarm fire.

Firefighters worked quickly to contain and extinguish the fire. Fire damage was contained to the first-floor apartment where the fire started, and a neighboring apartment sustained smoke and water damage.

All occupants of the involved apartment self-evacuated, while several neighbors required assistance in evacuating their apartments. There were no injuries to residents or firefighters. Sadly, two cats were found deceased, and one more may be outstanding. The American Red Cross has been called to assist the displaced residents.

Everett Police assisted with traffic control. Marysville Fire District and Snohomish Regional Fire and Rescue provided mutual aid.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Everett Fire Marshal’s Office.

Firefighters use horizontal ventilation to get the smoke out of the apartment.

A closer look as the unit is vented. The fire was contained to one apartment.

10:30 AM initial report: Fast work by Everett Firefighters who were called to the Parc on 12th Apartments in the 2200 block of 12th street in north Everett for smoke coming from one of the units.

The fire was reported about 9:15 Tuesday morning. Flames and smoke were coming from a ground floor unit as the first Engine arrived. The Station 2 crew was able to contain the fire as additional units arrived.

Due to the size of the complex the fire was upgraded to a second alarm.

The occupants were able to escape the apartment without injury.

Inspectors with Everett Fire were on scene at the time of this writing working to determine the cause and origin of the fire. We’ll update if more information is made available.
