A house fire, early Monday morning, caused severe damage to a vacant home in North Logan. Craig Humphreys, Deputy Chief with the North Logan Fire Department said the fire was reported around 3:13 a.m. at 1609 North 1000 East. When fire fighters arrived on the scene, they found the home’s roof engulfed in flames.
“When the fire department arrived,” said Humphreys, “the fire had already come up through the roof, in a vacant two story home.”
“So we were able to use a ladder truck to extinguish the fire,” said Humphreys. “We were able to extinguish the fire in about 30 minutes.”
Humphreys said the home had been vacant for several months. He said the fire appeared to start in a room above the home’s garage. An investigation into the cause of the fire is being conducted.
The fire was first reported by a USU facilities employee who called the USU Police Department. Crews from North Logan, Smithfield, and Logan all reported to the fire.
Damage is estimated at $175,000.00.
