Fire leaves S. Jordan family of 4 homeless
First Published Dec 17 2013 06:26 am • Last Updated Dec 17 2013 07:37 pm

An early Tuesday morning fire left a South Jordan family of four without a home, but they escaped serious injury.

Public safety dispatchers say a 12:27 a.m. 911 call brought South Jordan Fire Department crews rushing to the residence at 9503 S. Angus Drive (3945 West). A mother and three children — including a 12-year-old boy who reportedly first noticed the smoke and alerted his mother — living in the home were found to have escaped the flames; they were treated for minor smoke inhalation.

Initial estimates of damage exceeded $100,000. The Red Cross and relatives were helping the family with shelter, food and clothing.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, but a mechanical room in the basement was believed to be the place where the fire started.
