Feb. 24, 2004
(KSL News) A Salt Lake City home goes up in flames while the homeowners are out of town.
Charred walls and a black roof is all that's left of the home at 1708 W. 1620 North in Salt Lake City.
Crews were called out to the fire just before 11:00 last night and despite a quick attack, they say this home is a total loss.
Dennis McKone/ Salt Lake City Fire Dept.: "Very intense, hot fire. Like I said, when they arrived they had fire rolling out the front window, the front door. There was also fire rolling out the back windows."
Damage is estimated at more than $200,000. And although the exact cause is under investigation, firefighters say superheated gases inside the house may have burst into flames once they got enough fresh air.Front line since 1983 and still going strong
