Unified Fire Authority crews quickly doused a house fire Friday morning in Taylorsville. A man, woman and their cat escaped uninjured.
UFA Capt. Clint Mecham said his crews' swift response was largely due to a vigilant Murray Fire Marshal Phil Roberts, who spotted the smoke about 7:50 a.m. while driving to work. He stopped and knocked on the door of the home at 1107 W. Murray-Taylorsville Road (4800 South) to alert the woman and her son, then called 911.
Efforts to reach Roberts Friday were not immediately successful.
