Fire officials said seven people lived in the house. No one else was hurt.

Damage was mostly kept to the basement and first story.

“There is no indication this home had working smoke alarms, which is the case in three out of every five home fire deaths,” a news release from the Marysville Fire District said.

The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause.
