Fire Destroys Cabin After Propane Explosion In Heber City
HEBER CITY, Utah – A cabin burned to the ground after a propane explosion Sunday afternoon in Heber City.
Wasatch County Fire Department responded to reports of an explosion and cabin fire in the Timberlakes subdivision on Cottonwood Lane, said spokeswoman Janet Carson.
A propane explosion immediately engulfed the cabin in fire, Carson said. Fire crews were able to put out the fire, but the cabin is a complete loss, with a collapsed roof.
The cabin was empty at the time, and no injuries have been reported, she said.
The windows of the cabin next door were blown out. There were people inside that cabin at the time, but no one sustained any injuries, Carson said. Debris was also blown far from the fire as well, she added.
Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the explosion.
