SYRACUSE The Syracuse Fire Department says one person suffered burns following a house fire Saturday afternoon.

The fire occurred in the area of 2345 S. Bluff Road at 1:23 p.m.

Kara Finley, with Syracuse City, told KSL TV when emergency personnel arrived on scene, heavy smoke could be seen coming from the garage. She said the injured person was taken to the hospital in stable condition. The extent of the person’s injuries was not provided. No other injuries were reported. However, a dog was rescued from the home and given oxygen.

Finley also said the crews had a hard time battling the fire because of the wind conditions in the area.

KSL also spoke to Scott Shea, who lives a few blocks away.

“We were working in the backyard,” he said. “Just working on some things.”

Suddenly, Shea said he could smell something burning.

“We were a few blocks away, but I thought that that’s really strong.”

Shea said a lot of cars in the area were stopping.

Crews from Layton, North Davis Fire District and Hill Air Force Base responded to the scene.

“They worked fast to get it out,” Shea said. “But the wind was just blowing it.”

He said residents were nervous for their own homes.

“Some of the neighbors, people next door were coming in and out of their houses,” Shea said. “And you know, you can tell that they were concerned if it would get over to their house.”

The estimated cost of damage to the property is at $400,000.

The investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
