(KSL News) One person is dead and more than a dozen families are homeless this morning after a fast-moving fire rips through an apartment complex in Ogden.
The fire started last night after 10:00 at the Canyon Cove Apartments at 1463 Canyon Cove Lane, and spread to trees and throughout the complex.
Firefighters spent the night evacuating residents and trying to keep the fire from spreading to the other buildings. Due to the size of the fire, several agencies were called out to help.
Dozens of firefighters are still on the scene this morning, dousing hot spots.The apartment building is destroyed.
Firefighters say when they arrived, their priority was rescuing residents from their balconies. The man who died was found in a third-floor stairway.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The roof of the building collapsed, which could make the investigation more difficult.
