A rapid response and an aggressive firefighting strategy were credited with keeping a southeast Salt Lake City blaze from spreading to nearby homes early Thursday morning.
Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman JasenAsay said the 1:44 a.m. fire did destroy a garage attached to a house near 1150 East and Emerson Avenue (1490 South). A motorcycle and other contents of the garage were lost to the flames.
"Firefighters . . . quickly controlled [and then] extinguished the fire before it spread into the yard and neighboring homes," Asay said. ""Nobody was injured [and] the family that resides at the home was not displaced, and stayed the night in their home."
