Crews Investigating Large House Fire In Orem
OREM, Utah — Crews said they were investigating after a large fire broke out in a shed, then spread to a home in Orem.
Shaun Hirst with the Orem Fire Department said they were dispatched to the area of 200 West and 1720 North around 2:45 p.m. Friday.
It was initially reported as a fire that started in a large shed outside the home, but Hirst said it later spread to the attic.
Neighbors captured the massive flames on video.
Hirst said two crews were called out in order to relieve firefighters from the high temperatures.
Three people were home at the time and were able to evacuate on their own, escaping without any injuries.
Hirst said the family will be displaced for quite a while, but the home will likely not be a total loss.
