SALT LAKE CITY — Seven residents were displaced Tuesday evening by a fire that began in the living room of their home.
Firefighters arrived at the home, near 1500 North and 2000 West, just after 6 p.m. Heavy smoke was coming through the window of the front room, said Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman Jasen Asay. He said crews had the blaze under control within five minutes of their arrival.
The home endured smoke damage throughout and the front room was damaged by flames. The occupants, five adults and two children, were not home at the time of the fire, but said they would stay with other family members until the home was safe to return to.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
