MARYSVILLE At approximately

6:30 a.m., July 18, Marysville Fire District crews responded to a 911 call concerning a residential fire on 74th Street.

The address turned out to be 2529 74th Drive NE in Everett, near Soper Hill Road. Nevertheless, local crews reported finding a fully engulfed home, according to fire district Public Information Officer Stephanie Price.

No injuries were reported. The Snohomish County Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire. No damage estimate was immediately available.

Mutual aid at the fire scene was provided by the Lake Stevens, Getchell and Tulalip Bay fire departments. In total, six engine companies, one ladder company and two medic companies responded to the scene along with two on-duty battalion chiefs.
