TREMONTON, Utah, July 14, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews battled a fire in a historic building in Tremonton Tuesday afternoon.
“Early this afternoon a fire started at the Daryl Building on the corner of 100 West and Main Street,” said a Facebook post from Tremonton City. “Brigham City Fire and Tremonton Fire crews responded with their ladder trucks while also being joined by other local fire departments on the ground.”
In efforts to save the Daryl Building and other adjoining buildings, fire crews were using an estimated 3,000 gallons per minute of water on the fire for three-and-a-half hours, the post said.
“Currently the water system is holding its own although it has taken a hit to our already low water supply,” the post added. “We ask that all city residents skip watering their lawns and do all they can to conserve water for the next two days to help our city’s drinking water supply return to previous levels.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
