House fire kills dog, displaces four adults

LAKE STEVENS — Four adults were displaced and a dog was killed Saturday afternoon when a home east of Lake Stevens was destroyed in a fire.

Firefighters arrived about 3:05 p.m. in the 19010 block of OK Mill Road to find a two-story house completely engulfed in flames, Lake Stevens Battalion Chief Larry Huff said.

No one was injured, but the structure was a total loss. Investigators believe the fire may have started in the home’s chimney, Huff said.

The family rented the property as a farm and kept pigs, cows and sheep, said Kris Krischano, spokesman for the American Red Cross of Snohomish County. The farm animals were not injured.

The Red Cross provided temporary lodging, food and clothing to the four adults, Krischano said.
