GARLAND — Fire fighters were called to an apartment fire Thursday afternoon. The blaze was reported around 5:30 p.m. on Canal Bank Road.
According to a press release, an individual called 911, stating an upstairs apartment inside a warehouse was on fire. Smoke and flames were visible.
Crews from the Garland and Tremonton fire departments were dispatched to the blaze. While units were enroute, more incoming reports stated no hydrant was nearby so a Water Tender from Corinne Fire was dispatched to assist with water supply efforts.
As fire fighters arrived, they found the upstairs of a two story building on fire with flames and smoke coming out of the roof. Interior crews made a quick entry and extinguished the flames, while keeping the fire from spreading throughout building.
The cause of the fire is still currently under investigation. The occupants were able to escape safely with no injuries reported. Unfortunately, two family pets did not survive.
