Firefighters had quite the challenge dousing flames that were burning a home in Monroe late Wednesday night. The fire was reported just before midnight at the 21400 block of 167th Ave. SE just outside the city limits, according to Snohomish County Fire District No. 7. Firefighters arrived to find flames shooting from the home at the end of a very long driveway with no nearby source of water. After making a search of the home to make sure no one was trapped inside, firefighters from several nearby agencies worked to bring in multiple water tenders and laid over 1,000 feet of house to fight the fire. Officials later confirmed no one had been home when the fire broke out and no one was injured, though one firefighter was taken to a hospital "for precautionary measures." Officials didn't elaborate, only to confirm the firefighter wasn't injured.
