Unified Fire Department crews were able to contain the blaze to two rooms inside the home, but smoke and water damage throughout the structure was extensive, estimated at more than $50,000.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, UFA Battalion Chief Curtis Day said.

The Utah Red Cross was assisting the residents of the home with temporary shelter needs.
