A closed door helped save the lives of twin sisters trapped in a raging apartment fire in Everett on Monday, according to firefighters. The Everett Fire Department said the two 3-year-old girls’ survival is a lesson for us all. Firefighters said flames covered every inch of the exterior of the girls' first floor apartment and then jumped to the second and third floor apartments. Two neighbors said they broke windows and yelled inside, but no one answered. They feared the worst. Everett Deputy Chief Fire Marshal LeRoy McNulty took our KOMO camera inside the charred apartment. The living and dining rooms are charred and blackened, nothing can be salvaged.
