MARYSVILLE — At approximately 8:15 a.m. on Oct. 18, Marysville Fire District crews were dispatched to respond to reports of smoke in the upstairs of a house on the 600 block of Ash Avenue. They arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the upstairs of the two-story single-family residence. Crews were able to contain the fire damage to a small area of a crawl space.
One of the house's residents had noticed a "chemical smell" earlier, and when she went upstairs to get a coat for one of the children, the smoke alarm began to sound.
All of the residents and their pets were able to escape the home without harm. The Red Cross is assisting the family of four.
The Marysville Fire District's Fire Marshal ruled the cause of the fire as electrical and damages are estimated at $20,000.Contact Marysville Globe Staff at email@example.com.
