LOGAN — Fire fighters were called to a house fire Thursday afternoon on the southwest side of Logan. The fire was reported by a neighbor around 3:15 p.m. at 1355 Country Manor Drive.

Logan City Fire Marshal Craig Humphreys said the blaze produced heavy smoke, visible throughout the area. As crews arrived on the scene, flames started breaching the residence.

“We had a column of smoke while we were in route,” explained Humphreys. “Then upon arrival we had fire coming from the attic of the single family dwelling.

“Everybody is reported out of the structure. We are just gaining knockdown on the fire now and we will be moving into our salvage and overhaul, and then into our investigation.”

The neighbor who called 911 was able to alert the two men who were inside the home when the fire started and get them out safely. There were no injuries reported.

Fire fighters used a ladder truck to shoot water on the blaze from above the roof. Crews were then able to enter the home and extinguish flames through the attic.

Humphreys said the fire appeared to originate above the garage and then spread through the roof.

“We had heavy smoke on the west end, fire and smoke on the east end, as well as the roof collapse. So, exactly the extent of the flames we’re not sure yet but definitely over the attic where we had the collapse.”

Fire fighters are still determining the cause of the blaze. The amount of damage is also still being determined.
