Marysville fire officials said Sunday that the cause of the early morning, four-alarm fire was still under investigation. They said there were no fatalities, but several people required treatment.

Fire crews rushed to the scene from nearby communities to help after the 1:07 a.m. EDT Sunday report of fire. No firefighters were injured.
