Tooele Firefighters Pull Man From Burning Home
TOOELE, Utah – Crews with the Tooele City Fire Department pulled a man from a burning house near 300 East 670 North.
Chief Chris Shubert said firefighters responded to the home around 3:15 p.m. Monday. Upon arrival, the victim’s wife told crews her husband, who is in his 60s, couldn’t get out of the home.
Shubert said one crew began working on extinguishing the fire while another crew began searching for the man.
“They located her husband upstairs in the bedroom,” Shubert said. “They were able to get him out and get him into the ambulance.”
He was taken to Mountain West Medical Center before being airlifted to the University of Utah Hospital’s burn center. No update on his condition was immediately available.
No cause for the fire has been released but Shubert said it appears to be accidental. He added the family will be displaced from the home due to extensive smoke damage.
