Fire officials: Fireworks likely to blame for damaged homes
LAKE STEVENS, Wash. – Fireworks may be to blame for $1 million in damages to several homes in Snohomish County. Lake Stevens was not the only place where homes were damaged across Western Washington during the July Fourth holiday. “Be careful with your fireworks,” warned William Parker. “Make sure your fireworks are out but they’re not. It might be a half-hour when you throw them away but they’re still warm.”
