MARYSVILLE — One man died and another was hospitalized after a house fire Thursday morning.
Someone reported heavy smoke coming from a three-story residence just before 3 a.m. in the 7900 block of 72nd Drive Northeast. Seven people lived there. Firefighters found a man dead in a basement bedroom, the Marysville Fire District said. Another man in a bedroom on the first floor was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
There were no other reported injuries, the fire district said.
A cost of the damage, mostly in the basement and first story, was not available.
