No one hurt when vacant commercial building burns in Monroe

The building along U.S. 2 has been condemned for years.

MONROE — No one was hurt when a vacant warehouse at the northwest corner of U.S. 2 and Fryelands Boulevard caught fire early Sunday morning.

Firefighters from Fire District 7 arrived around 1 a.m. The building has been condemned for years, district spokeswoman Heather Chadwick said.

For safety, firefighters tried to extinguish the flames from the outside. The roof and walls collapsed.

The building was at one time a brick factory, Chadwick said.

Firefighters from Lake Stevens, Everett and Fire District 4 assisted.
