Another look.

Shortly before 9 PM Everett Firefighters were called to reports of smoke coming from the Snohomish County Hazardous Waste Drop Off in the 3400 block of McDougall in Everett.

The first arriving unit found heavy smoke and flames coming from a large dumpster next to the building and called for a commercial fire response.

Everett Firefighters were able to bring the dumpster fire under control and keep it from spreading into the building. Crews did enter the building and go onto the roof to make sure there was no extension.

There were no injuries and at the time of this writing an investigator was on scene looking to determine the cause.
