LAYTON, Utah — Firefighters took down a basement fire that spread into a family’s home Monday evening near 2100 Kays Creek Drive.
According to Layton City Fire Battalion Chief Ason Cook, the homeowner noticed smoke coming from their basement and called 9-1-1 at approximately 6 p.m.
The owner and two other adults left home and waited for first responders to arrive. They had no reported injuries.
When fire crews arrived, they noticed a basement fire on the west side of the home, Cook said. They were able to take down the fire without further incident.
The fire damage was mostly limited to the basement but somewhat spread to the second floor. Most of the damage to the home is smoke damage, according to Cook.
“Our number one priority is life safety,” Cook said. “So as firefighters respond to an incident like this, the first thing we worry ourselves about is everyone out of the home.”
Fire investigators are looking into the cause of the fire. The family is displaced from their home.
