No one was injured in a fire that caused more than $50,000 damage to a home northeast of Silver Lake near Everett on Wednesday evening, April 17, 2013.
Dispatchers received multiple calls around 8:15 p.m. reporting flames coming from a single-story house in the 2100 block of 105th Pl. SE.
Firefighters responding to the call could see a large column of black smoke from several blocks away. The back of the house was engulfed in flames when the first firefighters arrived.
No one was inside the house at the time of the fire. Firefighters from Fire District 1 and 7 responded and had the fire under control in about 20 minutes.
The house is heavily damaged. The man who lived in the house plans to stay with friends.
The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
