MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Fire broke out at a commercial building in Mountlake Terrace early Sunday.

About 1:30 a.m., police reported smoke coming from a two-story building that houses an insurance agency and an auto shop in the 21700 block of Highway 99.

Firefighters from Snohomish County Fire District 1, Lynnwood and Shoreline arrived to find smoke throughout the building.
