Mill Creek—At 3:21 a.m. Monday morning firefighters were dispatched to a reported vehicle fire at the 15000 block of 30th Drive SE in the Mill Creek Red Cedar Neighborhood. 

Crews arrived to find a truck that was fully engulfed in flames with the fire quickly spreading to the garage and second story of the house.

Firefighters were able to quickly gain control and extinguish the fire to keep it from spreading further into the home protecting important valuables.

Two adults and two dogs were able to get out of the house with no injuries before crews arrived. Two cats were not able to be located.

There is an estimated $300,000 in damage to the home. The Snohomish County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire. Firefighters from Fire District 7 and South County Fire battled the blaze.

Members of 1-800-Board-Up assisted the family with securing their home. The American Red Cross was contacted but was unable to come due to the road conditions. The Fire 7 Foundation was able to financially assist the displaced family.
