An electrical issue is believed to be the cause of a house fire in the 1600 block of Colby Avenue.

Reports came in around 10:20 AM of smoke in the attic. Here’s the release provided by Everett Fire this afternoon and some MyEverettNews.com photos of the scene.

Just before 10:30 a.m., Everett Fire responded to a house fire in the 1600 block of Colby Avenue, which was called in by the homeowner. The resident reported smoke coming from the attic space and the home fire alarm sounding.

Engine 2 arrived on the scene to find smoke coming from a second-story window. Upon further investigation, a working fire was located within the wall between the kitchen and dining room and the attic/rafter space of the home.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire contained and prevent it from spreading through the rest of the home.

Thankfully, there were no injuries to the residents or firefighters.

The cause of the fire is believed to be electrical in nature.

Every home should have working smoke alarms, which allow precious minutes for occupants to evacuate their homes in case of a fire.

Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement.

The Everett Fire Department has a program to assist our residents with installing smoke alarms free of charge. If you need assistance and live in the Everett city limits, contact the Everett Fire Marshal’s Office at 425-257-8100 or email at FMO@everettwa.gov.
