Utah-Park City Structure Fire
A fire Friday afternoon caused almost $15,000 worth of damage to a house under construction in the Promontory subdivision but no one was injured, Park City firefighters say.
They responded to the blaze in the Snyderville Basin in two fire engines, two fire trucks and an ambulance, around 4:30 p.m., Park City Fire District Captain Bob Zanetti said.
"Upon arrival, we could see flames on the back side of the house," Zanetti said. "It looked like it started on the roof and then the embers dropped down and caught the main level on fire and it burned up from there."
The cause of the fire is under investigation, he added.
Construction crews were working at the house when the fire started. They had framed more than half of the structure but hadn't installed trusses for the roof, Zanetti said.
The fire, which occurred on the West View Trail road in Promontory, was out within minutes, said Fire District spokeswoman Tricia Hurd
