Homeowners, 3 dogs escape fire in Edmonds

EDMONDS — Fire raced through an Edmonds home Tuesday evening but the occupants and their three dogs got out safely.

The two-story house in the 700 block of Hemlock Way was blazing when crews arrived shortly after the 6:45 p.m. 911 call, said Leslie Hynes, public information officer for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

Neighbors had placed the call and alerted the homeowners, who were unaware of the fire. The couple and their dogs got out safely, but one of their cats died and another was missing on Tuesday evening, Hynes said.

A second alarm brought more firefighters to the scene, including crews from Lynnwood and Shoreline. The fire was under control in about 15 minutes, but hot spots kept firefighters busy for hours.

The home was heavily damaged by smoke and fire. Information about the likely cause was not immediately available.
