Firefighters arrived to find that two of the four occupants of the affected apartment were still inside the smoke-filled unit, but they were able to help them get out safely.

"All four occupants were medically evaluated by [paramedics] and did not require transport to local hospitals," Bauman said.

The Ogden City Fire Marshal’s Office was investigating the cause of the blaze.

Initial damages were estimated at $10,000.

No injuries were reported.
