A two-alarm residential fire in Roy early Wednesday became a potential crime scene when a woman's body was found after the fire was extinguished.
Davis County public safety dispatch received a 911 call about the blaze about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday. The fire initially was reported as being in the garage of a home near 4500 South and 1975 West, but as second alarm was issued as the home itself was engulfed and adjacent structures were threatened.
Firefighters soon doused the flames, and treated a resident for smoke inhalation.
Then, police put up caution tape around the scene. Roy Fire Chief Jason Poulsen reportedly confirmed the home was being considered a "crime scene," but said it was too early in the investigation to speculate on whether the woman reportedly a mother of two had died before or during the fire.
