A fast attack by Everett Firefighters limited damage to two units in a fire Sunday afternoon at an apartment complex on 9th street in north Everett.

About 12:20 PM calls began coming in to Sno911 of a fire in an apartment at a complex in the 3000 block of 9th street just west of East Marine View Drive. The first in engine reported a smoke column from two blocks out.

The fire was upgraded to a confirmed commercial response bringing in additional support from Marysville Fire.

Engine 2 was first to arrive and began an attack on the back side of the fire building with additional engines going to the front side and a ladder crew to the roof.

Firefighters were able to limit the fire to two end units of the affected building and prevented it from spreading.

There were no injuries but a few residents were taken to Providence Regional Medical to be checked for possible smoke inhalation out of an abundance of caution.

The American Red Cross has been called to assist those who were displaced.

At this writing an inspector with Everett Fire is on scene looking to determine the cause.

We’ll provide updates as information becomes available from Everett Fire.
