Family escapes fast-moving house fire in Sandy
SANDY, Utah — Three members of a Utah family were displaced after a fire severely damaged their Sandy home late Tuesday night.
Sandy Deputy Fire Chief Ryan McConaghie said crews responded to a fully engulfed garage fire on 9500 South and 170 East that was reported by police around 11:45 p.m.
The fire quickly spread to the home’s attic and a car, but firefighters said the home’s living space was not damaged.
Two parents and a child were displaced, along with two dogs. Crews said one cat died in the fire.
Damages were estimated at $250,000 and investigators were not sure if the home would be a complete loss. Officials said family is helping house the displaced occupants.
No injuries were reported and the fire’s cause is under investigation.
Units from Sandy and West Jordan responded to the fire.
