SANDY, Utah — Multiple fire crews were dispatched to a house fire in Sandy on Sunday morning.

According to Deputy Chief Ryan McConaghie, the homeowners reported smelling electrical smoke most of the morning, but were unable to find a source.

Crews were dispatched to the residence near 9600 South and 285 East just after 11:00 a.m. when the homeowners saw flames in the attic.

Firefighters initially attempted an offensive attack, but had to withdraw.

They then opted for a defensive attack, fighting the fire from the outside.

Additional teams were brought in from West Jordan and Unified Fire.

Crews were able to contain the fire to the attic.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and damages are estimated at $100,000.

No injuries were reported.
