CLEARFIELD -- A garage was destroyed and an adjacent home was heavily damaged by fire late Thursday afternoon.
The report of the blaze at 893 Birch St. came into emergency dispatchers shortly after 5 p.m.
When firefighters arrived, a detached garage was engulfed in flames and fire had spread to a rear bedroom of an adjoining house, said Mark Becraft, deputy chief with North Davis Fire District.
A woman, who was not identified, was in the house at the time but managed to escape without injury.
The fire appears to have started on the south side of the garage, Becraft said. The fire does not appear suspicious, and the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
When firefighters arrived, they found downed power lines, which hampered efforts to fight the garage blaze, Becraft said.
He estimated that the garage and home had $50,000 to $60,000 in damage.
About 30 firefighters responded and had the blaze under control in about 15 minutes.
In addition to North Davis Fire District, other personnel included members of the Layton, Clinton and Syracuse fire departments and Davis County Sheriff's Office.
