Marysville house fire injures 3; woman in critical condition

A man also suffered serious injuries in the fire Thursday night in the southwest Marysville area.

MARYSVILLE — Three people were taken to the hospital after a house fire late Thursday, authorities said.

Just before 9 p.m., neighbors reported a house on fire in the southwest Marysville area, north of Marine Drive NE, according to the Marysville Fire District. They told dispatchers people might be inside.

When firefighters arrived, they found heavy fire and smoke coming from the home. The three residents had reportedly gotten out. Neighbors were helping them. A woman in her 50s was critically injured. A man in his 50s was seriously injured. And an 18-year-old woman appeared to be in stable condition. They were all taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.

Fifteen minutes after arriving, crews put out the fire. The house was severely damaged, according to fire officials.

The Tulalip Bay Fire Department, Everett Fire Department and Fire District 19 helped put out the fire.

The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office was investigating the cause Friday.

The fire district recommended testing smoke alarms at least once a month, replacing smoke alarms every 10 years and installing them on every level of the home, inside each sleeping room and outside each sleeping area.

“Fire can happen to anyone at any time,” Fire Marshal Tom Maloney said in a press release. “If you have not tested your smoke alarms recently, we implore you to do that today. Working smoke alarms can save your life.”
