A large shop only sustained minor damage after quick action by Snohomish County Fire District 7 firefighters at an early morning fire on Saturday, June 15, 2013.
A neighbor called 9-1-1 just before 2:30 a.m. to report a recreational vehicle fire spreading to a building in the 4600 block of 240th Street SE in unincorporated Snohomish County.
Firefighters arrived to find a 40-foot recreational vehicle engulfed in flames and spreading to the two-story shop it was parked alongside. Although the closest fire hydrant was more than 800 feet away, firefighters were able to quickly knock down the flames and keep the fire from spreading even further.
More than 20 firefighters responded, including units from Bothell and Woodinville. There were no injuries.
The recreational vehicle is a complete loss. The Snohomish County Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
