1 found dead in fire that burned Everett bar
EVERETT, Wash. -- One person was found dead after a two-alarm fire heavily damaged a bar in Everett Saturday night.
Firefighters responded to reports of flames and smoke coming from the roof of Harvey's Pub on Broadway at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the Everett Fire Department.
The second story of the two-story building was fully engulfed in flames. The structure consisted of a commercial business on the first level and apartments on the second.
Occupants self-evacuated the building after being alerted by the building's fire alarms. There were no fire sprinklers in the building.
But firefighters received a report that one person may have still been inside the building. A search of the first and second floor originally came up empty, and firefighters were not able to access one portion of the second floor due to unsafe fire conditions. Once fire conditions were under control, a second search of the building was conducted and crews found a man's body on the second floor.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner will determine the man's cause of death.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The second story of the building suffered extensive damage and the ground level sustained water damage.
Updates will be released as they become available.
