ARLINGTON — An early morning fire injured two people and killed six horses Tuesday north of Arlington. Four other horses were injured.
The fire was in a large barn in the 28400 block of Kunde Road in the Bryant area, said Christian Davis, a battalion chief with North County Regional Fire Authority. It was reported about 2:06 a.m.
Firefighters arrived to find the barn and the horse arena in flames.
Two people were taken to a local hospital with minor burns and smoke inhalation, he said.
They were burned while saving some of the horses.
Firefighters also tried to save the horses but were pushed back by heat and flames, Davis said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office.
Damage was estimated at $600,000. About 40 firefighters responded from North County Fire, Arlington, Arlington Heights, Stanwood and Silvana. They were on scene more than 12 hours putting out the fire and helping with the horses.
