NORTH LOGAN — A fire blazed through a fourplex early Thursday, leaving its 13 occupants without a home.

At 12:36 a.m. Thursday, the Logan Fire Department received a call of a fire in a multi-family unit at 430 W. 950 North, according to Logan Fire Marshal Craig Humphreys.

The man who called said he said he saw flames on the back of the building. Responding fire crews from Logan, North Logan, Smithfield and Wellsville located the fire that had climbed up the outside of the two-story townhouse style apartments and into their attic areas, Humphreys said.

The occupants of the two apartments that received the most fire damage were awake when they saw the fire and were able to leave their homes and notify neighbors, he said.

No one was injured in the fire. The four families — eight adults and five children — were left without a homes, he said.

"It has burned through the roof structure, through the trusses, so they will be displaced. Need to be some significant remodel done to restore the building," he said.

One family asked for help from the Red Cross and the others stayed with relatives.

The fire caused an estimated $200,000 in damage to the building, specifically to the back and attics of the apartments.

Investigators began looking into the possible cause of the fire, Thursday morning.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
