$1M Property Damage in Deadly Washington Fire

November 15, 2012

The loss of a building destroyed in a deadly three-alarm fire in Everett, Wash., is estimated at $1 million, and that doesn’t include the contents.

The fire displaced residents in 13 apartments in the two-story building. The 118-year-old building also had a flea market, pizza parlor and cabinet shop on the main floor.

The city of Everett says police and fire investigators continued to look for the cause of Thursday’s fire.

Authorities had to wait for demolition work to stabilize the building Saturday before they could recover a body that was visible. The person has not been identified. Neighbors at the scene said one apartment resident had not been accounted for.

An adjacent building has smoke and water damage and tenants were allowed back inside Tuesday to recover belongings.
