Everett: Suspicious dumpster fire investigated
EVERETT – Police and firefighters are investigating another small fire set in north Everett.
Firefighters discovered a fire just before 3 a.m. Saturday inside a dumpster behind a business at 2601 1/2 Colby Ave.
The fire was contained to the bin and didn’t spread to a pile of pallets and carpet rolls next to the dumpster. No major damage was reported.
Investigators are looking at any possible connection to a string of small fires set in the area since June 1.
“There is a similarity in time, materials used and location,” according to Everett Assistant Fire Marshal Rick Robinson.
Police and firefighters don’t know yet whether the fires were set by the same person. Investigators say the method of ignition, time and materials are similar in the majority of the fires.
“We have a very strong sense of urgency and it’s our duty to the citizens to get this one solved,” Robinson said.
Investigators also wanted to remind residents to remove any combustibles from alleys or next to their homes.
Robinson also wanted business owners and residents to lock their dumpsters to prevent anyone from starting a fire inside the trash bins.
