Fire trucks on scene

OGDEN — Three people were displaced after an early-morning house fire in Ogden on Thursday.

Fire crews were dispatched to a home on the 1300 block of Lewis Peak Drive around 1:10 a.m. Thursday morning, according to Shelby Willis, deputy fire chief for the Ogden Fire Department.

When crews arrived, they found a fire had started in the home’s attached garage and had spread to the home’s attic. Crews were able to put out the fire quickly after they arrived.

The three adults who lived in the home were able to safely escape the fire without injury, Willis said. The family’s dog was also unharmed after the fire. No injuries were reported among the firefighters as well.

The Red Cross was called to the home to assist the three displaced residents.

Willis said the estimated damage to the home is around $80,000. The fire caused “significant” damage to the home and garage, Willis said.

As of Thursday afternoon, the cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
