1 killed, 6 rushed to hospital after duplex fire in Snohomish County

EVERETT, Wash. -- A 29-year-old man died, and six others -- including two children -- had to be rushed to the hospital overnight after a garage fire damaged a duplex outside Everett.

Investigators are still working to figure out how the fire started.  Firefighters arrived at the home on the 300 block of 127th Street SE just before 1:00 Thursday morning, and found the 29-year-old victim inside a car in the garage.

Four other adults and two children were treated for smoke inhalation and have since been released. The dog that was rescued and treated by firefighters did not survive.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
