KEARNS, Utah (News4Utah) – Unified Fire Authority crews responded to a brush fire that eventually spread to a house in Kearns.
The fire was reported at 4094 West 5820 South around 3:15 p.m. Friday.
Firefighters said the fire involved one house and several backyards. Crews quickly extinguished the fire in the house and worked to clean up hotspots in the backyards.
Crews from West Jordan, South Jordan, West Valley City and South Salt Lake also responded to the two-alarm fire. Officials said it is common to strike a second alarm when the temperatures are so hot to provide extra manpower and limit work cycles.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
