UPDATE: Stove-top burner caused mobile-home fire near Lynnwood that displaced 1

UPDATE: 8:28 p.m. | The fire in a mobile home near Lynnwood Monday afternoon was caused by a stove-top burner that was accidentally left on, investigators said.

ORIGINAL POST | A fire heavily damaged a mobile home north of Lynnwood in Snohomish County Monday  afternoon and displaced a woman who lived there, Fire Department officials said.

The double-wide mobile home at Carriage Club Estates in the 13300 block of Highway 99 was unoccupied when it caught fire, according to Leslie Hynes, spokeswoman for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

Neighbors, who noticed the fire around 4:30 p.m. and called 911, initially told responders they thought the woman was inside, but a quick search of the place came up empty, Hynes said in a release, and it turned out that she had left earlier in the day.

Firefighters put out the flames in 20 minutes, and the displaced woman will be assisted by a Fire Department support unit, the release said.

The fire’s cause is under investigation by the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office.
