OGDEN, Utah, Nov. 29, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews battled a commercial structure fire in Ogden Monday evening.

“Crews are on the scene of a commercial structure fire in the area of 25th and Grant Avenue,” said a tweet from Ogden Fire Department at 10:09 p.m.

“Units have water on the fire and an all clear. Please avoid the area.”

A follow-up tweet at 10:47 p.m. said: “Fire crews have fire control and loss stop on the structure fire. Three-story commercial building, the cause is under investigation.”

A statement released Tuesday morning said the fire address was 2485 Grant Ave., and fire was found in a stairwell of the empty building.

“Due to the size of the structure, it took fire units some time to clear the smoke and ensure the fire had not spread further through the building,” the statement says. “The cause of the fire is currently under investigation and the cause is currently unknown,” it said, adding that a fire marshal was on scene.

Damage is estimated at about $20,000.

Twenty-three firefighters from Ogden City Fire Department and Riverdale Fire Department responded with one ladder truck, four engines, one rescue crew and one ambulance, the fire marshal and the battalion chief.
