Everett duplex fire sends 8 to the hospital

Seven people have been hospitalized following a duplex fire in Everett this morning.

Everett Fire Department crews were called to the duplex, in the 1700 block of 63rd Street Southeast, at  7:45 a.m. for the blaze. Upon arriving, firefighters found the duplex heavily involved in smoke and flame, said Kate Reardon, spokeswoman for the City of Everett.

Reardon said that the fire was knocked down by about 8:35 a.m.

Seven residents of the duplex, four adults and three children, made it outside safely.  They were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center for evaluation, Reardon said.

The residents told authorities they awakened to the smell of smoke, and searched for the source before evacuating.

Rick Robinson, fire marshal for the City of Everett, said the duplex was destroyed. Damage is estimated at about $300,000.

Robinson said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
