Bedroom fire damages Providence home

PROVIDENCE — A fire Tuesday morning caused significant damage to the inside of a home near 224 East 200 North.

Logan City Fire Department Assistant Chief Brady Hansen said, when crews arrived on the scene they found smoke throughout the home.

“Once crews entered the house, we found one bedroom, down in the basement that had been heavily involved in fire,” said Hansen. “We were able to get that knocked down very quickly and right now we have started the fire investigation to determine the cause of the fire. We know the area it started, we have got to determine the cause.”

No one was injured in the fire and the home’s occupants were able to evacuate before crews arrived.

The fire was first reported at 8:15 a.m. and Hansen said crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze within a few minutes.

“It had been heavily involved in fire,” said Hansen. “Looked like it was starved of oxygen so it may have died down a little bit before we arrived. It was still burning when they got but they were able to get it under control very rapidly.”

The fire was contained to the basement bedroom but the rest of the home sustained smoke damage.

Logan City Fire Marshal Craig Humphreys said the cause of the fire was from some combustible material that was accidentally left to close to a lamp.
