Tooele city fire investigators are working to determine the cause of fire that gutted the family room of a residence on Sunday.

The homeowner reported the blaze just after 5 p.m. The city's volunteer fire department extinguished the fire within 45 minutes, Fire Chief Gary Coon said.

The family room and its contents were destroyed, but the home remains habitable, he said. An early estimate placed the damages at about $10,000.

The cause of the fire remained undetermined Sunday.

No one was injured, although the homeowner, who was home alone when the fire broke out, was treated at the scene for light smoke inhalation, Coon said.
