PHOTOS: People were seen jumping from second-story windows of a Lake Stevens apartment building to escape a fire on Wednesday. Snohomish Regional Fire and Rescue said flames broke out around 1:45 a.m. in the 1600 block of 127th Avenue Northeast. SRFR, SCFD4, Marysville Fire, Everett Fire, Granite Falls Fire, and Getchell Fire were all dispatched. SRFR said eight units were affected. Crews were on their way when they were told people were jumping out of windows to escape. The Lake Stevens Police Department helped those people before fire crews got there. Once there, SRFR helped the two people who jumped with their minor injuries. Crews then started attacking the fire. As firefighters went to the back of the building, they found one person hanging out of a window with smoke billowing out of it.
