A resident reported the fire around 3:10 p.m.at a tri-level house in the 23000 block of 29th Ave. W. All four residents were inside the house at the time of the fire. They safely exited the burning building. Firefighters treated one woman at the scene for a minor burn. There were no other injuries.
“The back of house was already engulfed in flames when the first firefighters arrived,” said Leslie Hynes, public information officer for Snohomish County Fire District 1, which provides fire service in the City of Brier.
Firefighters from Fire District 1 and Lynnwood responded and had the fire under control in about 20 minutes. Damage to the home and its contents is estimated at more than $400,000.
The house is uninhabitable. The homeowner has insurance. Support 7 and Red Cross responded to assist the residents.
Fire investigators have not yet determined how the fire started.
