A swift attack by Everett firefighters limited damage to two units during a fire Sunday afternoon at an apartment complex on 9th Street north of Everett.
At around 12:20 p.m., calls began coming in to Sno911 about a fire at an apartment complex in the 3000 block of 9th Street, just west of East Marine View Drive. The first engine reported a column of smoke two blocks away.
The fire has been upgraded to a confirmed commercial response bringing additional support from Marysville Fire.
Engine 2 was the first to arrive and launched an attack aft of the fire building with additional engines going forward and a ladder crew on the roof.
Firefighters were able to contain the fire to two end units of the affected building and prevented it from spreading.
There were no injuries, but a few residents were taken to Providence Regional Medical to be checked for possible smoke inhalation as a precaution.
The American Red Cross has been called in to help the displaced people.
As of this writing, an Everett Fire inspector is on hand to determine the cause.
We will provide updates as information becomes available from Everett Fire.
