WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah - A man is recovering from burns on his hands and feet after his home caught fire Friday morning, and authorities said a teenage girl living in the home admitted to sparking the blaze.
Firefighters were called to the home near 38th S. and 2200 W. at about 3 a.m.
Before they arrived, officers and neighbors rushed in to get everyone out of the home.
Authorities said they were told a 15-year-old girl was still in the house because no one could find her.
However, she was located a short distance away at a relative's home and was not injured.
The teen later admitted to starting the fire in her bedroom and said she panicked and ran afterward. While apparently human-caused, investigators said it's not clear if the fire was set intentionally or by accident.
The Red Cross is helping the seven people now left without a home.
Officials estimate the damage at about $100,000.
