At 10:15 pm on Thursday, November 26, 2020, firefighters were dispatched to a report of a residential structure fire at the 4600 block of 151st Place SE east of Mill Creek.
Units arrived on scene to find fire coming from the first and second floors of the single family home with fire extending into the attic.
The crews initial attack was from the outside of the home, then they worked inside to fully extinguish the fire.
The fire significantly damaged the home, but firefighters were able to save some personal belongings.
Neighbors reported the fire.
No one was home when the fire started and there were no injuries.
The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
