No one was injured in a fire this morning that caused heavy damage and forced a couple from their mobile home in the Silver Lake neighborhood south of Everett.
The fire was reported just before 7 a.m. on April 13, 2013 in a double-wide mobile home in the 12200 block of Nels Peters Road. A smoke alarm alerted the couple to the fire and they were able to safely escape with their dog.
The mobile home was engulfed in smoke when firefighters arrived. When the first crew opened the front door to check conditions inside and make an interior attack, a firefighter stepped through the floor. He was not hurt.
About 40 firefighters from Fire District 1 and 7 and Mukilteo Fire Department responded. The unstable floor and heavy damage to the rest of the structure made it unsafe for firefighters to enter mobile home, so firefighters had to attack the fire from outside.
