At approximately 7:15 p.m., Sno911 began receiving reports of a column of smoke coming from an area between Everett and Marysville west of the 529 freeway. Marysville responded to Cedar Grove where a metal building containing organic material caught fire.
When the roof of the building burned, a column of black smoke could be seen for miles around. This scattered, white smoke billowed from the burning material for several hours.
Everett Fire says there were no explosions and no injuries. Due to the location fire tenders were brought in from nearby agencies to help supply water. Factory workers used heavy machinery to break up the material.
The crews had to deal with hot spots for several hours.
