SPANISH FORK, Utah, Feb. 26, 2023 (Gephardt Daily) — A Spanish Fork residence, half of a twin home, was destroyed by a fire Friday.

First responders were called to the scene at about 4 p.m., and arrived on scene at a twin home near 1300 S. Somerset Drive.

“Arriving crews witnessed flames coming out of the garage area, which is where the fire started, though the cause is currently unknown,” says a statement from Spanish Fork Police, Fire & EMS.

“The fire was 100% contained by 5:45 p.m. due to the number of hidden voids in the home where the fire was burning.

“One of the homes is considered a total loss while the adjoining twin home sustained some smoke and water damage. The American Red Cross was called to help the two displaced families. No injuries were reported.”
