Salt Lake City, UT (February 03, 2021) – One person has been hospitalized following a house fire on Sunday, January 31st.

According to an official with the Salt Lake City Fire Department, a house in the 1300 block of West 500 South went on fire at about 6:30 a.m.

When firefighters reported to the scene, the house was completely engulfed in flames but was extinguished fairly quickly.

Three family members were home when the fire broke out but were able to make it out alive due to their smoke detectors. One of the residents was transported to a local hospital for emergency treatment of smoke inhalation. Both family pets, a cat and a dog, died in the fire.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

There are many kinds of accidents that can cause fire-related injuries such as burns or complications from smoke inhalation. Regardless of whether you sustained your fire-related injuries during a house fire, a construction accident, an explosion, or a traffic accident, these types of injuries are often serious, sometimes life-threatening, and they frequently cause additional medical complications. 

Injuries caused by fire are usually painful, demand multiple surgeries, and can leave their victims with noticeable scars. 

If you or a family member has suffered a fire-related injury during a fire or an electrical accident, your next move should be to seek the counsel of a burn injury attorney who can protect your rights as well as help you recover your physical health and economic losses.
