Huge fire damages apartment building on Everett waterfront

Jul 16, 2020, 6:37 PM | Updated: 10:10 pm

A massive fire on the Everett waterfront damaged an apartment building, a home on Grand Avenue, a ladder truck, and an aid car.

The fire, in the block of 1700 West Marine View Dr., burned to the ground an entire 4-story apartment building called the Waterfront Place Apartments, owned by SeaLevel Apartments. A second 4-story unit remains.

The Everett Herald says construction started in Sept. 2019 and the building was scheduled to open in 2021. They would have been the first apartments on the new Everett waterfront.

The fire began to spread up the cliff and caused a brush fire. It then spread to a home in the 1600 block of Grand Ave.

Everett Fire says one firefighter experienced a burn on his hand as he was moving an aid car out of the way of the fire. The intense heat blew out the windows of a ladder truck. The heat also melted and burned parts of an aid car.

There were no other reports of injuries.

Everett Fire also says it’s too early to know the cause of the fire, but it’s under investigation.

Firefighters from Arlington, Mukilteo and South County Fire assisted. Hundreds of people gathered outside to watch the blaze while neighbors watered down their roofs and yards.
