COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS — A two-alarm house fire killed one person Wednesday afternoon, and officials say the blaze appears to be suspicious.

Flames already had swept through the main floor of the rambler at 2938 E. Bridgewater Drive (7550 South) when firefighters arrived around 3:30 p.m., said Unified Fire Authority Capt. Jay Fearnley.

A body was found in the kitchen of the home near the back door, Fearnley said. Flames had so badly burned the body that officials were not able to identify the victim, he said.

"It's definitely suspicious," Fearnley said. "But it's still under investigation."

The home was a total loss, with damages exceeding $250,000, he said.
