MOUNTAIN GREEN, Morgan County — A fire in Mountain Green consumed a two-story single-family house early Saturday morning.

The Mountain Green Fire Protection District said that the family was not home during the time of the fire, and there were no injuries reported.

The fire occurred in the area of 5988 Roundup Ct in the Rawlins Ranch Subdivision.

MGFPD said they were first notified of the fire around 6 a.m., and the building was already entirely engulfed by the time the first 911 call was received. They said in a Facebook post that “the house is an almost total loss, though firefighters were able to keep flames from burning a car in the garage and one on the driveway.”

The post also said the fire required a total of four district partners to help contain and extinguish the fire.

Morgan Fire and EMS, who was one partner, also made a Facebook post saying that when crews arrived, the fire was too large to approach offensively. Crews quickly set up their equipment to minimize additional hazards.

“We were able to integrate our crews into theirs, helping with aerial operations and exposure protection. Our ambulance crew provided medical standby and rehab assistance for all firefighters on scene,” the post said.

The fire was deemed under control around 9 a.m. Saturday.

An adjacent building suffered minor damage. It suffered some cracked windows due to the heat.

MGFPD provided an update Sunday, saying they had volunteer firefighters who returned to the scene four times to continue helping extinguish the smoldering debris. Because the entire structure collapsed under the fire, the base of the rubble was difficult to reach with water hoses.

The district said Fire Marshall Barrett will attempt to determine the cause of the fire on Sunday.
