SALT LAKE CITY -- A two-alarm structure fire at a four-plex building in Rose Park displaced a family of seven early Sunday morning.

At approximately 3:19 p.m., Salt Lake City firefighters responded to the blaze at 561 N. Redwood Road. The fire started in an outside shed then moved inside the building, according to a press release from Salt Lake City fire.

The fire also caused a carport to collapse and two vehicles were destroyed in the flames. The plastic siding outside an apartment building to the north was also melted.

Thirty-five firefighters responded to the scene and worked to protect several neighboring structures from catching fire as well as extinguishing the blaze.

A family consisting of two adults and children ranging from ages of 19 years old to 6 months were displaced. The Utah Red Cross was on scene to assist them, the release states.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators have ruled the fire as accidental.
