LAYTON — A fire at a Layton medical clinic Wednesday morning caused an estimated $250,000 in damages to several businesses. 

At 7:12 a.m., a fire was reported by a passerby at Davis Family Physicians branch of Ogden Clinic at 3225 W. Gordon Ave. in Layton, according to Layton Battalion Chief Scott Maughan. 

Smoke and flames were visible in the building’s heating, ventilation and air condition system when firefighters arrived, Maughan said, and the fire spread throughout the building’s attic. 

The fire was under control within 45 minutes. Forty-five firefighters responded to the scene, including those from Layton, North Davis Fire District, Syracuse Fire Department, Clinton Fire Department and Hill Air Force Base.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire is under investigation. 

While none of the individual units in the building received fire damage, several reported smoke and water damaged. The building’s attic was also heavily damaged, Maughan said.

“Most of those businesses will be closed for two or three days, if not longer,” he said. 

Davis Family Physicians said on its Facebook page that, due to the fire, it will be seeing patients at alternate locations through mid-to-late December.

Legacy Pediatric Dentistry said it will be closed for the rest of the week and will be contacting patients to reschedule, while the West Gordon Pharmacy said it hoped it would be open by Wednesday.
