House fire displaces three in Marysville

Firefighters believe the flames started in the garage and spread to the attic.

MARYSVILLE — Three people were displaced after a fire tore through a house Tuesday night.

One person was asleep when the fire reportedly started at the home in the 5300 block of 138th Street NE, but nobody was injured.

The district estimated the damage at $140,000. Christie Veley, a spokeswoman with the Marysville Fire District, said the home is about 60 percent damaged, meaning it’s not a total loss.

“But it’s pretty well damaged by heating and smoke,” she said.

The cause is under investigation, but firefighters believe the flames started in the garage and spread to the attic.
