SNOHOMISH — Nobody was injured in a house fire that lit up the night at the corner of Shorts School Road and Treosti Road in the Snohomish River Valley.
Fire crews arrived at around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 to find the home already heavily in flames. Flames could be seen coming up through the roof. They worked a defensive fire with no way to safely enter.
The fire was under control around 12:15 a.m., Snohomish Fire District 4 said.
Water tender trucks were needed at the fire. Fire District 4 reports firefighters used approximately 33,700 gallons of water to extinguish the fire.
Some residents in Snohomish posted pictures on social media that they could see the fire glowing from the valley.
Fire District 4 were the primary responder. Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue dispatched as well. Twenty-nine firefighters fought the blaze, Fire District 4 said.
The county fire marshal’s office will investigate the cause. The building was a heavy loss.
