1 dead after fire at Harvey’s Pub on Broadway in Everett

The 1951 building had apartments on the second floor, where the victim was found.

EVERETT — Firefighters are searching for the cause of a two-alarm fire that killed a person early Sunday morning in a two-story building that housed Harvey’s Pub.

The blaze prompted the closure of Broadway while firefighters tried to keep the flames from spreading. The building at 3615 Broadway did not have sprinklers.

Everett Assistant Fire Marshal Steve Goforth said the second floor of the building, where the victim was found, had apartments. City officials said the person was male, but his age was not immediately available.

The building was originally built in 1951. It was the home of the Buzz Inn Steakhouse until 2016, when that business relocated down the road near Pacific Avenue. The 68-year-old building had masonry walls on the first story and more wood on the second floor, Goforth said.

“It’s an old building … I can tell it’s been here a while,” he said.

The cause of the fire and the fatality are under investigation.

The fire was reported just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday. A caller described flames and smoke showing from the roof.

The building was equipped with fire alarms, which alerted occupants of the fire.

Firefighters battled the blaze defensively but did try to find the missing person.

“A search for the person was conducted on the first and second floor with nobody located,” the City of Everett said in a news release. “However, firefighters were not able to access one portion of the second floor of the building due to unsafe fire conditions. Once fire conditions were under control, a second search of the building was conducted, and a deceased male was found.”

Identification of the male will be released by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner pending positive identification and notification of next of kin.

The second story of the building suffered extensive fire damage, and the ground level had extensive water damage.

Snohomish County PUD and Puget Sound Energy secured utilities to the structure. Firefighters from Marysville, Lake Stevens, Naval Station Everett and South Snohomish County helped during the fire.
