Marysville firefighters respond to house fire


At 5:08 AM on Thursday morning, the Marysville Fire District was dispatched to a residential fire in the 3900 block of Rose Road. Firefighters arrived at 05:16 AM and located a fire in a residential building.

Original reports stated, "house was on fire". The first arriving officer reported a residential structure with smoke and fire visible from the structure. Firefighters originally fought the fire offensively and switched to a defensive operation for safety. The fire was under control within 60 minutes and the fire was confined to the structure. There were no injuries reported.

The fire dollar loss has been estimated at $350,000 (total loss).

At the height of the incident more than 24 firefighters battled the blaze, with mutual aid provided by Tulalip Bay (Snohomish County Fire District 15), Silvana (Snohomish County Fire District 19), and North County Regional Fire Authority.

The fire is being investigated by the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office and is still under investigation.

The Marysville Fire District would like to remind you to check your smoke alarms regularly and practice your emergency plan. The installation of fire sprinklers will reduce the effects caused by fire.
