First Published Aug 13 2013 06:51 am • Last Updated Aug 13 2013 08:42 am

An early Tuesday morning fire heavily damaged a Sandy house, but its three occupants escaped unharmed.

Sandy Deputy Fire Chief Bruce Cline said the blaze, reported 3:38 a.m. at 9585 S. 266 East, began on the home’s backyard deck and quickly spread into the attic, kitchen and living room.

The three occupants of the home — two men and a woman — attempted to douse the fire with a garden hose before calling 911.

The cause of the blaze, which was extinguished by Sandy Fire Department crews within 15 minutes, was undetermined — though the residents reportedly told firefighters they had been smoking on the deck late Monday evening.

Damages were believed to have topped $30,000.

No injuries were reported.
