Six fire departments respond to two-alarm fire at Pleasant View corral
PLEASANT VIEW, Utah — Crews from several fire departments responded to a two-alarm fire at a horse track and corral Tuesday morning.
The first alarm sounded at approximately 9:35 for the fire near U.S. Highway 89.
A Weber Fire Department Facebook post said, “Crews arrived to find a large horse tack building and corral fully engulfed. There were explosions caused by stored propane tanks located inside.”
The post said fire crews laid over 1,000 feet of water hoses.
That’s when the second alarm sounded.
Crews closed both directions of U.S. Highway 89 and Pleasant View Drive.
Fire crews evacuated all humans and animals. No one was hurt but a dog was injured. It was expected to survive.
The North View Fire Department said several units have remained on scene to watch out for hotspots.
Investigators have yet to determine what started the blaze.
