RIVERTON, Utah – Unified Fire Authority crews were able to quickly put out a fire in Riverton and are still investigating the cause.

Just before midnight a UFA battalion chief says they had reports of an explosion and fire near 1800 W. and 13600 S.

When they arrived a truck parked next to a home was on fire and the fire was spreading to the eaves and the garage.

They were able to extinguish the fire quickly with minimal damage to nearby homes.

There was some minor smoke damage to the home but the family is able to stay.

The neighbor’s home also had some damage to vinyl siding.

Fire authorities will be looking into what caused the truck to start on fire.
