Everett officials investigating two possible arsons

The Everett Police Department is investigating two suspicious fires as possible arsons.

 Just before 4 a.m. Saturday, Everett Police and Everett Fire responded to reports of a fire in the 1500 block of W. Casino Rd. Local residents were putting out the fire, which caused minimal structural damage and no injuries, Everett Police said in a news release.

 Just before 5 a.m., police and fire crews responded to a second fire, in the 8600 block of 18th Ave W.  That blaze caused substantial structure damage to the exterior of an apartment building but no injuries, according to the news release.

Arson detectives were called in but at that point did not believe the two fires are connected. The news release said that in both fires, local residents quickly called 911 and began fighting the blazes, preventing what could have been substantially more damage.
