MILLCREEK, Utah, Dec. 24, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews battled a fully-involved residential fire in Millcreek Thursday evening.

Unified Fire Authority Public Information Officer Patrick Tostin said the blaze broke out in the area of 3846 S. 1030 East just before 8 p.m.

Tostin said that the residence was a “duplex-type structure,” and on arrival heavy smoke and fire were coming from both units. The blaze was knocked down in less than 20 minutes, he added.

All the occupants were able to exit the structure safety and there were no injuries.

A total of seven people were displaced as a result of the fire and the Red Cross is assisting those individuals, Captain Keith Plagemann told Gephardt Daily at the scene.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation. It is unclear where the fire originated, Plagemann said.

A total of four to five engines, a ladder truck and a utility truck were called to the scene, as well as two ambulances, though no one was transported.
