SALT LAKE CITY — Seven people were displaced from their apartment following a fire Wednesday.
About 8:30 a.m., heavy smoke was reported in a unit at the Landing Point Apartments, 176 N. Redwood Road. The first arriving fire crews initially couldn't tell which unit was on fire because of the heavy smoke, said Salt Lake City Fire spokesman Jasen Asay.
After quickly determining that a second-story unit was on fire, crews discovered the fire was coming from a back bedroom and got it under control, he said.
Four adults and three children lived in the apartment. They were receiving help from the American Red Cross on finding a place to stay. The fire was contained to the one unit, Asay said. The apartment below the one that caught fire suffered smoke and water damage.
Firefighters evacuated the surrounding apartments, including waking up residents who were still in bed and getting them out safely.
The cause of the fire was still being investigated Wednesday.
