MARYSVILLE – The Marysville Fire District was dispatched to a residential fire in the 1100 block of Marine Drive NE at 3:12 p.m. on Dec. 15. Firefighters arrived at 3:20 p.m. and located a fire in a single story residential structure.
Original reports stated the house was on fire with smoke and flames showing. The first arriving captain reported a one-story fully involved residential structure.
