LYNNWOOD, Wash. — Snohomish County Fire District 1 estimated damage at more than $200,000 to a detached garage that burned Monday afternoon in unincorporated south Snohomish County.

Which raised the question — exactly what kind of garage was that?

Snohomish County Fire District 1 explained in a news release that the fire heavily damaged most of the items in the two-story garage — which included a hydroplane … along with battery-powered cars, airplanes and boats.

A passerby called 911 just before 1 p.m. Monday to report smoke coming from a large garage in the 20700 block of Larch Way, east of Lynnwood.

When firefighters arrived, the district said, they found thick black smoke inside the 40-foot by 60-foot, two story metal building.

No one was injured in the fire, but the family’s cat died.

A fire investigator determined the fire was mostly likely electrical, the district said.
