A woman was found dead after police spotted smoke coming from her West Valley City home in the early hours of Friday morning.
Responders first received reports of the fire in the area of 3690 South near 3500 West at 1 a.m.
One crew started immediately on an interior attack on the fire while a second crew searched for people in the home.
“At that time found a female victim inside and brought her out,” explained Battalion Chief Bob Fitzgerald with the West Valley City Fire Department. “She was beyond any medical attention that we could give to her.”
No information was given on the age or identity of the victim.
