The blaze prompted an additional response from Bluffdale, Draper, and South Jordan fire departments.

Authorities tell ABC4 they believe the fire started in the garage, but are continuing to investigate the scene. A car also started on fire, and crews were able to protect the rest of the structure while letting the “excessive amounts” of fuel in the vehicle burn off.

“Lots of smoke and flames coming from multiple windows,” PIO Patrick Costin with Unifed Fire Authority tells ABC4.

Crews say there is extensive fire and smoke damage throughout the first and second floors of the home. Six people were living at the residence.
