SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, April 27, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews from the Salt Lake City Fire Department responded Saturday morning to a residential fire on Concord Street.

The call came 9:16 a.m., and crews arrived minutes later at the scene, 1415 S. Concord St. (about 1250 West). A lone caller had reported smoke coming from both the back and front of the structure.

Salt Lake Fire Department Chief Adam Archuleta told Gephardt Daily crews found the scene as described.

“When they arrived, they did confirm there was smoke coming from both the back and front, and the house appeared to be unoccupied, but not necessarily vacant,” he said, adding that Salt Lake City fire crews “made an aggressive attack, and the fire was controlled within 10 minutes.”

Investigators were called in to assess the damage and determine how the fire started, and “investigators are still working to discover the cause,” Archuleta said, adding he was not sure if an owner had been located.

No firefighters were injured during the operation.
