Just spoke with Snohomish County fire crews on scene of a fire near the Mukilteo Speedway. They are still trying to get a handle on what they're attacking, but it appears a home and tire shop caught fire.- Alex Rozier (@AlexRozierK5) October 16, 2017
The fire department spokesperson told me they responded to a fire at the tire shop and when they arrived a firefighter noticed a house on fire as well.- Alex Rozier (@AlexRozierK5) October 16, 2017
In the darkness of the early morning it is difficult to see exactly what they are fighting. More than 30 firefighters on scene. 1 lane of Southbound 99 temporarily closed near the Mukilteo Speedway.- Alex Rozier (@AlexRozierK5) October 16, 2017
