SALT LAKE CITY -- Two people are in serious condition after a two-alarm house forced 10 residents and six dogs from a Salt Lake City home early Saturday morning.

Fire crews responded to the scene at about 3:52 a.m. at 865 W. 800 South. The fire caused severe damage to the outside of the house, as well as the front room and kitchen areas, according to a press release from Salt Lake City fire.
