OGDEN, Utah — One woman is on life support after a fire broke out at a trailer park in Ogden Sunday morning.

Crews were dispatched to the Harrisville Trailer Park at 200 North Harrisville Road just after midnight.

The initial report was that one unit was on fire, but when crews arrived, the blaze had spread to two additional units.

Ogden City and Weber Fire Districts managed to get the fire under control, preventing any further spread. They began salvage and overhaul shortly after.

Two occupants were evaluated for smoke inhalation.

Jill Hunter said it was her friends Mary and Mike Parker.

“She woke up to the home engulfed,” Hunter said.

Running from the house, the flames moved to units 16 and 18 next door.

Hunter said both her friends were rushed to the hospital, but Mary was moved down to the University of Utah burn unit while Mike was released.

“She is now fighting for her life due to the chemical inhalation,” Hunter said.

On life support, Hunter said Mary did not suffer any burns on the outside of her body, but it’s all on the inside and in her lungs.

“Prayers are with her and I know she’s being watched over by her angels,” she said.

Four people will be displaced due to structural damage to two of the units.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. The combined damage of the three units is estimated at $55,000.
