DRAPER, Utah – Firefighters responded to a 2-alarm house fire after an off-duty firefighter noticed smoke coming from a home in Draper.
Draper Fire officials received the call around 3:35 p.m. Monday after an off-duty Unified Fire Authority firefighter, who lives in the area, noticed smoke coming from a nearby house.
Crews arrived at the structure near 13000 South Long Tail Drive and said they found a rear-side deck completely engulfed in flames.
The off-duty UFA firefighter helped evacuate two adults from the home.
Draper Fire Cheif Clint Smith said no injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
Flames reached the attic and master bedroom of the house and caused extensive damage.
Smith said a second alarm was called in because attic fires can be labor intensive and with temperatures in the high 90s Monday, he said the extra resources help protect firefighters’ health and safety.
