Crews fighting Woods Cross structure fire
First Published Jul 25 2014 05:26 pm • Last Updated Jul 25 2014 10:48 pm

A two-alarm fire destroyed two businesses in Woods Cross on Friday.

Firefighters responded to a call at 4:50 p.m. of a fire at Overhead Door Co. at 2481 S. 1560 West, said Jeff Bassett, fire chief for South Davis Metro Fire.

"While enroute, a visible column of smoke was seen in the area of the building, signifying a large fire," Bassett said, so a second alarm was sounded, bringing more firefighting resources to the scene.

When firefighters arrived, flames were coming through the roof of the building, which houses Overhead Door and another company.

Six employees were inside Overhead Door when the fire broke out; all made it out safely, Bassett said. Crews surrounded the burning building and doused it with water, protecting other structures from the fire.

By 10 p.m., the fire was knocked down, Bassett said, adding that crews would remain at the site all night, putting out hot spots.

"The building was a total loss," he said, and likely would need to be completely demolished.

Investigators were searching for the cause of the fire, Bassett said.

In all, 58 firefighters, two ladder trucks, seven engines and an ambulance responded to the fire, Bassett said. Crews from Salt Lake City, Kaysville, Farmington, Layton, Sunset and South Weber fire departments were on the scene. One firefighter suffered a head injury that required stitches during the blaze.
