SANDY, Utah — The Sandy Fire Department responded to a shed fire Saturday afternoon.

According to  Ryan McConaghie, of the Sandy Fire Department, first responders were called to the area of 13th East and 9900 South just after 4 p.m.

When the fire department arrived, the shed was fully involved. McConaghie told KSL that the fire had spread onto the grass. Additionally, the fire extended into the house and burned in through the attic. 

The fire was first reported when neighbors noticed the smoke and notified the homeowners. McConaghie says all the occupants of the house were able to get out without any injuries.

However, the occupants will be displaced due to the damage to the house.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The estimated cost of the damage from the fire is between $100,000 and $150,000.
