SNOHOMISH, Wash. - Firefighters say a 93-year-old man died in a house fire in Snohomish.
Crews were called to the home in the 16000 block of Roosevelt Road at 4:20 a.m. Tuesday for a report of a fire with a person trapped inside the home. It was reported that there was fire coming from the TV.
Two Snohomish County Sheriff's deputies, who arrived at the home first, tried to enter the home but were overwhelmed by smoke.
Allen's wife got out of the house, but said her husband went to get a flashlight and never came outside.
Allen's grandson said his grandfather was a longtime Snohomish County rancher who spent decades as the yard manager of the Marysville Livestock Auction.
