OGDEN — A fire overnight at a house in Ogden has displaced six people.

Fire crews were called to a structure fire at 2:38 a.m. Tuesday, July 10, at 3357 Quincy Ave., according to Ogden Fire Department Deputy Chief Eric Bauman.

“There was heavy flames and smoke when we approached the house,” he said.

Six people and two dogs were in the home at the time of the fire, but all had gotten out safely by the time fire crews arrived, according to Bauman.

Both Ogden and South Ogden fire departments responded to the blaze, with 21 firefighters, three engines, two ladder trucks, an ambulance, a paramedic rescue vehicle and the battalion chief.

No injuries were reported.

“We made entry very fast, and put the bulk of the fire out within minutes of arriving,” he said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Bauman said the fire occurred in the “kitchen area” of the home.

OFD called the American Red Cross to help the family. Bauman said OFD typically requests the Red Cross to assist when victims don’t have somewhere else to go following a fire.

The fire caused an estimated $50,000 in damage to the home.
