OGDEN, Utah, March 11, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews battled a house fire in Ogden early Monday morning.

A series of tweets from the Ogden Fire Department beginning at 6 a.m. said crews were on the scene of the blaze at 4821 Van Buren Ave.

“Interior division reporting heavy fire inside first floor,” a tweet said. “Unknown if there are occupants. Possibly a dog inside.”

Crews gained control of the fire and began a primary search inside the structure.

There was no one inside the house, officials said, and the dog was found in the backyard. A cat was located, uninjured, in the basement.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Officials have not said how much damage was caused by the blaze.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
