SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Dec. 19, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — Firefighters responded to the scene of a mobile home in flames in the area of 730 West and 840 South on Tuesday night and arrived to find the structure fully involved.
Audra Sorenson, Salt Lake City Fire Department spokeswoman, said the fire was called in a little after 6:30 p.m., and a second alarm was called because the flames were threatening a nearby home.
Sorenson said 26 firefighters were on scene, and traffic was diverted between 700 West and 900 West.
Salt Lake City police officers were monitoring traffic.
Witnesses said power lines were an obstacle to crews as they worked to extinguish the fire.
Within about 40 minutes, the blaze was under control and no other structures were threatened.
Sorenson said no one was injured and, to the best of her knowledge, no one was in the mobile home at the time of the fire.
In a later update on Twitter, SLCFD said two adults were displaced by this fire and are being helped by the Red Cross.
The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, and no estimate of damages was immediately available.
