MARYSVILLE — A middle-of-the-night fire caused half a million dollars in damage at the Value Village store on State Avenue.
Firefighters were called to the store just after midnight Sunday. A fire was burning in a semi-truck attached to the store and had spread into the building, said Christie Veley, spokeswoman for the Marysville Fire District. Crews went through the store’s roof. It took about three hours to bring the blaze under control. A sprinkler system in the store helped limit the spread of the fire.
The store was not open Sunday morning, but employees were working on clean-up and hoped to open in the afternoon. Value Village sells second-hand clothes, furniture and other household items.
The Snohomish County fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire, and plans to review surveillance video from the store.
