76-year-old woman dies of injuries from Colby Square Apartments fire in Everett

EVERETT, Wash. — The Everett Fire Department said Tuesday that a patient who suffered from smoke inhalation in the Colby Square Apartments fire last week died from their injuries on Monday.

Everett firefighters battled a two-alarm blaze at the Colby Square Apartments in the 2200 block of Colby Avenue late Thursday night.

The Everett Fire Marshal said that all 14 units in the two-story apartment were left uninhabitable.

Two people were injured in the fire. One occurred when a resident jumped about 10 feet to the ground to escape the fire. The other injured resident — a 76-year-old woman — was hospitalized in critical condition with smoke inhalation and died Monday.

No identity was immediately released.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
