SALT LAKE CITY -- A mother was able to save her 3-year-old son but not 2-year-old daughter from a fast-moving house fire Thursday evening.
The fire claimed the life of Nicole Curran, city fire officials said. Her body was found in a bedroom in the northeast corner of the basement and her death appeared to be from smoke inhalation. The mother was in extreme emotional distress, fainted and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
The fire started in the basement and firefighters found heavy fire and smoke coming from the basement when they arrived, said Scott Freitag, public information officer.
The blaze was burning through the floor joists and firefighters were not able to get into the basement until the fire was controlled, he said.
The cause of the fire had not been determined.
