OGDEN — One person and their six pets were displaced on Monday night after their apartment caught fire, authorities say.
The incident, which is estimated to have caused $75,000 in damages, occurred at 449 13th Street just before 9:30 p.m., Ogden fire officials said in a news release.
The caller reported hearing “loud, popping sounds” and said they thought a transformer had caught fire, fire officials said.
Crews found a downed power line across an apartment when they arrived on scene.
Because of the live electrical line, firefighters couldn’t enter through the front door and instead cut a hole in the side of the apartment.
The fire was quickly extinguished and the cause is under investigation.
Nearly 20 firefighters from Ogden City and Northview Fire responded to the fire with two ladder trucks, two fire engines, one paramedic rescue, one ambulance, a fire marshal and a battalion chief.
No one was injured in the fire.
