MONROE — A house outside Monroe was significantly damaged in a fire Wednesday night, according to Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue.

Firefighters responded shortly before midnight to reports of a house fire in the 21400 block of 167th Avenue SE, outside the city. Flames could be seen from a distance.

As firefighters worked to control the fire, they confirmed no one was home. With no hydrants nearby, they brought in several water tenders and laid more than 1,000 feet of hose down the long driveway. Crews worked through the night to extinguish the blaze and put out any hotspots. Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue, Sultan Fire District 5, Duvall Fire and Snohomish County Fire District 4 responded to the scene.

One firefighter was transported to a hospital as a precaution but did not suffer any injuries, according to a news release from Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue. The Snohomish County fire marshal was investigating the cause of the fire.
