Original post:

The Everett Fire Department is battling a stubborn fire in two houses.

The fire was reported just before noon at a home in the 2000 block of 23rd Street. Responding fire crews found flames from the roof of one home were spreading to the roof of a neighboring home, according to Everett fire officials.

The residents of one house were confirmed to be outside the home when firefighters arrived. The second home is in foreclosure and believed to be unoccupied.

Fire crews are attacking the fires from both inside and outside of the houses.

Firefighters are still battling hard-to-extinguish attic fires in both houses, the Fire Department said.

No injuries have been reported.
