Unified Fire Authority crews received a call about the fire near 1505 W. 13400 South at 12:51 a.m. Crews arrived within minutes, Unified fire spokesman Eric Holmes said, and found the home's two-car attached garage, the two cars inside of it, and a third car in the driveway engulfed in flames.

One man in his 30s was injured and transported to the hospital. Fire officials did not know his condition. All other residents evacuated the home, and no other injuries were reported.

Crews had the fire under control within about 40 minutes, Holmes said, but damage to the home was "significant," estimated to be roughly $100,000, and the family will be displaced.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
