GARLAND, Utah, April 26, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Investigators have announced that a Monday morning fire at a Garland residence was caused by a 6-year-old boy playing with a lighter.
Garland Fire Department crews responded at 4:30 a.m. to a fire that started in a basement laundry room of a house on the 100 South block of Main Street.
