NORTH OGDEN -- A North Ogden home sustained heavy damage in a fire Friday afternoon.

The fire at 459 E. 3100 North was reported around 12:45 p.m.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation but started in the basement, said Capt. Justin Messerly, of the North View Fire District.

A reupholstery business was housed in the basement, and solvents and other materials likely contributed to the fire, he said.

The owner of the home, Danny Williams, said Friday at the scene that he, his wife and their 5-month-old daughter were in the house when the blaze broke out.

There was a huge fire downstairs, Williams said, adding his family escaped unharmed. Two dogs were also unhurt.

When firefighters arrived, flames had broken through the basement window and were moving up the exterior of the house toward the roof, Messerly said.

The fire caused about $160,000 damage to the house and an undetermined amount of damage to the contents.

About 25 firefighters from the Plain City, Ogden, Weber and North View Fire Departments responded. They remained at the scene for nearly four hours.
