According to KOMO News, the fire broke out at 5:45 p.m. Thursday at the Waterfront Place Apartments, a 266-unit complex that has been under construction for more than a year.
High winds carried burning embers across West Marine View Drive, which then sparked fires along 16th Street. These smaller fires severely damaged a nearby home.
A truck from the Everett Fire Department had its windows blown out from the sheer heat of the flames, according to KOMO. At least 73 firefighters were on the scene attempting to douse the flames.
Officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
