EVERETT — No one was injured in an early morning house fire Saturday that brought Everett Fire Department crews out to a blaze in the 2600 block of E. Grand Avenue.

Firefighters responded to the house fire at about 4:40 a.m. Several neighbors noticed smoke and flames coming from the top of a three-story home, according to a statement by Everett fire marshal Rick Robinson.

Neighbors told firefighters that the 1900s-era home was being remodeled and that no one was living in it, Robinson said. Crews attacked the fire from the outside, and after most of the flames were extinguished, searched the house, finding no one.

The fire was out at 6:30 a.m. The cause is under investigation.

Damage to the home is estimated at $250,000, Robinson said.
