Four homes were destroyed or damaged late Saturday and early Sunday in Snohomish County. Four more homes were damaged by a fire blamed on fireworks in Covington, and yet another blaze attributed to fireworks damaged an unoccupied house in Seattle's University District.
One man was injured in the leg by an explosive device thrown from a car in Snohomish County, and a woman with him also was hurt.
Three of the Snohomish County fires were in unincorporated areas, said Leslie Hynes, a spokeswoman for Snohomish County Fire District 1.
The first was reported by a passer-by at about 10:20 p.m. at a vacant home north of Lynnwood, she said. The loss was estimated at $60,000.
Three people watching television escaped after fireworks ignited a blaze at a house east of Everett. Damage was estimated at $150,000.
