OGDEN, Utah, Nov. 12, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews battled a blaze at a residence in Ogden Thursday night.

“At approximately 11:10 p.m., fire crews were dispatched on reports of a structure fire on the 127 block of 9th Street in Ogden,” said a news release from Ogden Fire Department. “Fire units arrived on the scene to find a single-family dwelling with smoke and fire coming out of one side of the structure.
