SANDY — A Sandy family is without a roof over their heads after a fire in their home Thursday spread to the attic, bringing down part of the ceiling.
The homeowner called 911 about 3:45 p.m., and fire crews quickly extinguished the fire, though damage to the attic had already been done, said Sandy Deputy Fire Chief Bruce Cline.
"The back side of the roof has collapsed, and the room that the fire was involved in the most, the ceiling has come down in there," Cline said. "It's a complete loss. There's not much left in there, because the furniture is all burned up too."
There were no injuries in the fire, and no other homes were at risk.
Cline said no damage estimates had been made Thursday, and investigators were still working to determine the cause of the fire.
