Marysville firefighters responded to a Nov. 15 residential fire.

At 08:42 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15, the Marysville Fire District was dispatched to a residential fire in the 5600 block of Grove Street. Firefighters arrived at 08:48 a.m. and located a fire in a single story detached garage.

Original reports stated that there was "a fire in the building." The first arriving officer reported a single-story detached garage with smoke and fire visible from the eaves of the structure. Firefighters fought the fire offensively and the fire was under control within 20 minutes, confined to the garage. The structure was occupied at the time of the fire. All of the residents self-evacuated and three were transported to an area hospital for observation.

The fire dollar loss has been estimated at $58,000. The Red Cross is assisting the family.

At the height of the incident, more than 24 firefighters battled the blaze, with mutual aid provided by Snohomish County Fire District 21 and Snohomish County Fire District 19.

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

The Marysville Fire District would like to remind you to never leave space heaters unattended, check your smoke alarms regularly and practice your emergency plan. Never re-enter your structure after you evacuate and the installation of fire sprinklers will reduce the effects caused by fire.
