Fire causes $10,000 damage to house east of Lynnwood

A fish smoker sparked a fire that caused more than $10,000 damage at a home in unincorporated Snohomish County east of Lynnwood Friday night.

The fire was reported around 6:45 p.m. at a two-story house in the 20100 block of 37th Ave. W. around 6:45 p.m. “A neighbor who lives behind the house reported seeing smoke and flames,” said Leslie Hynes, public information officer for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

Firefighters from Fire District 1 and Lynnwood responded and had the fire under control in about 10 minutes. “The fire was contained to an enclosed area of a second-floor deck and an enclosed storage area below,” Hynes said. “The fire didn’t extend into the living area of the house. Most of the damage was caused by smoke.”

The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office investigated the fire and determined it was accidental.
