NORTH SALT LAKE -- Fire crews were able to extinguish a blaze in the Pine Terrace apartment complex at 4247 South Highway 89 Sunday.
But not before damages were enough to displace 11 people.
Jeff Bassett, fire chief of the South Davis Metro Fire Department, said occupants came home at 7 p.m. to find smoke alarms going off and a fire on the stairwell of their apartment.
He said heavy fire was present in their basement.
Crews responded and doused the blaze.
Bassett said surrounding apartments received smoke and water damage, causing residents to be displaced.
Seven people were assisted by the Red Cross for overnight accommodations. Others found shelter elsewhere.
