EVERETT — People at an assisted-living home in Everett cleared out early Wednesday morning after a fire broke out.

The fire occurred around midnight at the home in the 13000 block of 4th Avenue W, Everett assistant fire marshal Eric Hicks said.

Firefighters found that the fire had been extinguished by a sprinkler located in a closet.

The fire was caused by combustibles too close to a light bulb in the closet, Hicks said.
