SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — Fifteen adults were displaced Thursday after an attic fire spread to several apartments in a Cottonwood Heights apartment building.

Unified Fire Police says that crews responded around 4:30 p.m. to a fire in the attic of an eight-plex near 2300 E 6800 S. Multiple families were affected after hot spots spread through the walls into apartments. Fire officials say deep insulation in the attic led to the expansion of the fire.
