(near Snohomish)  A mother and her daughter were treated for possible smoke inhalation following an early morning house fire near Snohomish today.

Snohomish County Fire District 1 Public Information Officer Leslie Hynes says firefighters were dispatched to the 5600 block of 134th Place SE around 12:30 this morning.

Four people and a cat managed to escape the split-level rental property.

“There was a gentleman who lives in the lower level of the house and he said the smoke alarm sounded. He heard it and went to check on the people who live in the upper level of the house, and he assisted them out the window,” Hynes said.

Hynes said it was a “very smokey fire,” adding that although it was contained to the living room area, there’s a lot of smoke and heat damage throughout the upper level of the house.

“A woman and her daughter were transported to Swedish (hospital), Mill Creek emergency room mostly as a precaution because they were exposed to a lot of smoke.”

The house is located about 1.5 miles west of Glacier Peak High School.  It is nearly directly across the street from the Whistle Stop Grocery & Deli.

An Applebee’s and Safeway are also nearby.

Brush fire sparked by vehicle striking pole closes highway near Monroe

Driver at large

B-roll

(Monroe, WA) State Route 203 closed temporarily at N. High Rock Road just south of Monroe early Saturday evening after a vehicle struck a utility pole and left the scene.

A small brush fire burned along the highway after several wires fell from the damaged pole.

It appeared firefighters waited for workers with the Snohomish County Pubilic Utility District (PUD) to arrive and shut-off power in the area before moving in to fight the fire.

No word yet on whether a  suspect’s been identified or located.

A few local residents said the suspect is believed to be a person who lives in the immediate area and was driving a white pick-up truck. However, that information has not been confirmed.

The fire along the highway serves as a reminder that brush conditions in western Washington are quite dry after weeks of warm weather and little rain.
