Fire destroyes Pleasant Grove home
Video of Fire:
Fire officials are investigating the cause of a blaze that destroyed a Pleasant Grove house late Thursday night.
Three people were on the back deck of a house near 800 West and 1200 North around 11 p.m. when they noticed a fire in the garage, according to Pleasant Grove Fire Marshal Steve Brande. The residents called 911 but the flames spread to the rest of the house quickly and the home was completely engulfed by the time firefighters arrived at the scene.
Fire officials are estimating the damage to the house at about $300,000. A neighboring house was also "a little scorched," Brande said.
Several neighboring houses were evacuated, but the residents were later able to return to their homes. No injuries were reported.
Brande said the cause of the fire was likely accidental, and said there may have been spontaneous ignition of paint rags in the garage. Gasoline cans and other flammable items in the garage contributing to the fast spread of the fire, he said.
