  • Mobile Home Fire in Bothell

    Bothell, Wash. – At approximately 10:30 p.m. last night, crews from the City of Bothell Fire and E.M.S., Woodinville Fire & Rescue, Shoreline Fire Department and  Snohomish County Fire District #7 responded to a residential mobile home fire located at 12810 NE 199th Street in the Holly Hills neighborhood of Bothell.

    Upon arrival, crews found the structure fully involved, with heavy smoke and flames coming from the back side of the home.  Firefighters made a fast attack to contain the flames and to prevent any extension to surrounding homes.

    Three adults and one child were able to evacuate before fire crews arrived. The family was displaced from their home due to extensive fire and smoke damage.  The American Red Cross responded to the scene to assist with the immediate housing needs.


    The structure is expected to be a total loss.  The fire has been determined to be accidental, with the exact cause still under investigation.


    The City of Bothell Fire and E.M.S. strongly urges everyone to practice home escape routes frequently and identify a meeting place outside.  Additionally, practice crawling low to the ground when escaping a fire. The number one killer in residential fires is smoke inhalation.  Protect your family by having several working smoke alarms installed in your home and check the batteries at least twice a year.
