A house fire in Mountlake Terrace Thursday night displaced six renters and caused more than $260,000 in damage, according to a news release from Snohomish County Fire District 1.
A woman, her son and her two grandsons, the only ones inside at the time, were able to safely escape the house, in the 22800 block of 41st Place West, the release said. Firefighters from District 1 and Lynnwood put out the blaze in about 20 minutes. No one was injured.
Investigators determined the fire may have been caused by a grill behind the house that had been used earlier in the evening, the release said.
The Red Cross is assisting the residents, as the house is uninhabitable, the release said.

Police say the truck driver is not expected to be cited.

A 33-year-old Edmonds man was killed around 7:25 this morning when he got out of his car on Interstate 5 in Mountlake Terrace and was hit by a semi-truck, police said.
Witnesses said the man, whose name has not been released, appeared to run directly into traffic, according to Sgt. Kirk Rudeen of the Washington State Patrol. He was dead when medical aid arrived, he said.
Initially, police were told that the man had parked a disabled vehicle on the right shoulder of southbound I-5 at 220th Street Southwest. But investigators found the man’s car keys on him and were able to start the car without difficulty, Rudeen said.
“The vehicle was not disabled and it had fuel,” he said.

What did you know and when did you know it, your honor? OK, Mayor McGinn has fessed up to knowing that the more than 700 guns turned in as part of a buyback program were made into rebar before he announced the plan to have them made into peace plaques. And he has explained that he didn’t want that fact to take the focus off the plan and those who supported it. But still, the facts are facts. You have to give credit to KIRO Radio reporter Brandi Kruse for breaking the story.
A police chase that began in Mountlake Terrace and ended in a Snohomish County intersection early this morning has left an officer and the suspect injured.
Students recommend raising tuition to boost faculty and staff pay: Whoa. A student-led committee at the University of Washington says that if the Legislature doesn’t increase funding for higher education, the school should raise tuition by 3 percent — and use all the money to give faculty and staff a raise.
Sun today, mostly sunny tomorrow, but we could see rain Saturday night and more rain on Mother’s Day. (You do know it’s Mother’s Day, right? Have you plans to honor your mom?) The temperatures should be in the 70s through the weekend on this side of the mountains. In Eastern Washington, it should be in the 80s and as high as 90 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
A big cat in the backyard: A young cougar that found its way into the backyard of a Vancouver, Wash., home early this morning was safely captured by state wildlife officials. A barking dog alerted the homeowner to the cat that was sitting up in a tree. It was tranquilized and taken away to be released later into the wild, they say. KGW News in Portland has the story.

A Washington State Patrol cruiser was destroyed near Mountlake Terrace just after 1 a.m. today after the trooper spun out during a police chase and struck a freeway guardrail.
The 26-year-old trooper was traveling north on Interstate 5, just south of 220th Street Southwest, chasing a car suspected in a traffic infraction, State Patrol spokesman Trooper Mark Francis. But as the trooper was traveling in the left lane, he apparently lost control of his car.
His vehicle spun out, struck the left median guardrail and came to rest partially blocking the carpool lane, Francis said. The trooper was not hurt, but the cruiser was destroyed.
The traffic violator got away, Francis added.
Francis said that it appears weather was a factor in the crash; it was raining heavily when the trooper spun out.

Two Edmonds men have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping and rape of a Shoreline woman as well as a string of robberies in the Seattle area.
The suspects, ages 34 and 35, were arrested Tuesday during a traffic stop in the 15200 block of Aurora Avenue North in Shoreline. They have each been booked into the King County Jail on investigation of multiple counts of first-degree robbery and one count of kidnapping.
One of the men was also booked on investigation of sexual assault, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
The men are suspected of 18 to 20 robberies of citizens at gunpoint. In one case, a Shoreline woman was robbed, kidnapped and sexually assaulted as she left her car in a parking lot, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The men are also suspected of robberies in Seattle and Mountlake Terrace.

UPDATE 7 P.M. | Rescuers and a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter successfully hoisted Bailey out of the drainage of Sol Duc River’s North Fork at about 6:30 p.m., according to a Olympic National Park release. They took him to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles for medical treatment.
Park officials say Bailey was smart about increasing his chances for rescue, which involved about 20 searchers starting Tuesday morning.
“He did all the right things,” said Olympic National Park Incident Commander Kristin Kirschner in a statement. “Once he realized he would not be able to get out of the canyon under his own power, he stayed where he was, made himself as visible as possible, built a large signal fire, and waited for help.”

Rescuers found a Mountlake Terrace man who had been missing in Olympic National Park for three days Wednesday afternoon, according to a park spokeswoman.
Tim Bailey, 32, had been immobilized since Saturday when he fell down a 100 to 150-foot drainage north of Sol Duc River and broke his ankle, according to park spokesman Rainey McKenna. Bailey had planned to end a three-day solo backpacking trip from Aurora Ridge Trailhead to the North Fork of the Sol Duc River on Sunday. When he didn’t show up by then, his wife reported the delay to the park, according to The Associated Press.
After two on-ground rescue crews heard what sounded like gun shots Wednesday afternoon, a helicopter sent to search the area spotted him around 3:30 p.m. Bailey, who indeed had a gun on hand, was then found by the on-ground rescuers who are with him now.
McKenna said the rescue team wants to airlift him out by tonight but that effort may be hindered by wet weather moving into the area. If that doesn’t work out, on-ground rescuers will likely transport him back to a trailhead themselves, she said.

Snohomish County fire investigators say that a cigarette or a candle are to blame for a blaze that caused serious damage to a Mountlake Terrace Home this morning.
Fire crews were called to the home in the 23800 block of 55th Avenue West at 3:05 a.m., said Leslie Hynes, spokeswoman for Snohomish County Fire District 1. When crews arrived the house was engulfed in flames.
Two of the four men renting the house were home at the time; they escaped safely, Hynes said. Neither of the men recall hearing the home’s smoke alarm signaling, Hynes added.
A fire investigator has estimated damage to the home at $125,000 and believes that the fire started in a back bedroom and spread to an attic.
While fighting the blaze, firefighter paramedics turned their attention to a bystander watching them. The person suffered some type of medical emergency and had to be taken to a local hospital, Hynes said.
