OGDEN, Utah, May 22, 2023 (Gephardt Daily) — A Sunday morning fire in a house in the 2200 block of Ogden’s Jefferson Avenue was extinguished after multiple agencies responded to douse the blaze.

The lead agency, Ogden City Fire, was joined by firefighters from Roy and Riverdale after the fire was dispatched at 11:45 a.m.

“Fire units arrived on the scene to a 2-story single family, abandoned, home with smoke and fire coming from inside the building,” says a news release issued by Ogden City Fire.
