House fire that reignited sparks closure of Mukilteo Speedway

MUKILTEO, Wash. — Part of State Route 525, also known as the Mukilteo Speedway, was closed in both directions Monday while crews fought a house fire that was believed to have been put out but reignited hours later.

The fire in the 7600 block of the Mukilteo Speedway started at around 4:30 a.m., according to Mukilteo Fire Chief Glen Albright. The fire was thought to have been extinguished, but later reignited in the attic.

All lanes of SR 525 were closed at 76th Street Southwest, starting at around 10:30 a.m. Video from a Washington State Department of Transportation camera showed numerous fire trucks and emergency vehicles at the scene and smoke in the air.

Both directions reopened at about 12:50 p.m.
