Everett Fire, Police Blotter

An Everett Firefighter works on the exterior of the apartment building.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire from extending into the interior of the building which housed 8 residents.

This fire could be seen from I-5 and the Hewitt Trestle.

A heavy rain helped keep this fire from spreading outside of the encampment.

Around 8:30 Thursday night Sno911 began receiving reports of a house on fire in the 2000 block of 23rd street just west of Broadway.

Everett Police Patrol officers were first to arrive on scene of a multi-unit apartment building with flames shooting up the side of the structure.

Two Everett Police officers worked to make sure everyone had gotten out safely, even entering the building at one point to make sure everyone was out.

Everett Firefighters arrived along with assistance from Marysville and Lake Stevens Fire. Crews were able to quickly keep the fire contained to the outside of the building and knock the flames down.

The fire never made it inside of the building though one side and a storage shed were damaged.

At this writing Everett Fire inspectors are on scene looking to determine the cause of the blaze.

There were no injuries and the two Everett Police officers who entered the structure were checked by medics for smoke inhalation and released at the scene.

About 30 minutes later, flames were reported east of I-5 near the Snohomish River.

Arriving Everett Police officers found a large fire at what was believed to be an encampment southeast of the Co-Op Supply at the east end of Hewitt Avenue.

Heavy rains kept the fire in check and Everett Fire crews were able to contain that blaze. There were no reports of injuries.
