Suspicious Fire Continues To Burn In Marysville Tire Pile
MARYSVILLE, Wash. (Metro) -- A suspicious fire continues to smolder in a huge mound of old tires in Marysville.
KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reports the blaze started around 10 p.m. on State Avenue, where tires are stacked in a ten-foot-tall pile in an open field near the Factory Outlet Mall.
Fire crews say the flames originated in the tires, spreading to nearby brush, but they didn't threaten any buildings.
A plume of thick black smoke was seen for several hours.
Investigators think the fire could be linked to a troubled past with a homeless encampment there.
