Update on Judd and Black Fire

From the City of Everett, here is the most recent update on the Judd and Black commercial structure fire:

Fire crews worked overnight to extinguish a three-alarm structure fire at Judd & Black Appliance, 3001 Hewitt Avenue.

Shortly after 7:30 p.m. Friday night, Everett Fire responded to a report of a dumpster fire on the north side of the building at Judd & Black Appliance. As fire units were responding to the address, a large smoke column could be seen from Everett Avenue and Maple Street.

Once on scene, flames were found on the north side of the building. Firefighters checked the inside of the structure and found the fire had extended into the interior of the building. As firefighting efforts continued, it was determined the conditions inside and around the structure of the building were not safe, and eventually the building suffered a partial collapse. There were no reported injuries.

Everett Fire Chief DeMarco states, “It is too soon to know how the fire started. Investigators are on scene to determine the origin and cause of the fire.”

Snohomish County PUD responded to secure the power for safety purposes, which affected area neighbors. Everett Police and Washington State Department of Transportation assisted with street closures. Mutual aid was provided by Maryville Fire District, Naval Station Everett, South Snohomish County Fire and Rescue, Snohomish County Fire District #4 and #22.

Street closures remain in place on the West and South side of the structure. Maple Street between Hewitt Avenue and California Street will remain closed for an indefinite amount of time. The 3000 block of Hewitt Avenue, westbound onto the Hewitt Avenue Trestle, is currently closed, but crews are working hard for an unknown amount of time, but crews are working hard to have it open as soon as possible.

Updates will be released as they become available.
