LAYTON, Utah — Crews with Layton City Fire Department responded to reports of a house fire around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.

When they arrived in the area of 2800 East and Marvin Way the home was engulfed in flames.

A neighbor knocked at the door to wake up the people inside after seeing coming from the back of the house, according to Layton Fire Battalion Chief Jason Cook.

The smoke hadn't set of fire alarms, but all three adults got out safely.

The fire attack went well and along with knocking the fire down quickly, crews were able to save a lot of personal belongings from inside.

The fire started in the back of the house near a large wooden patio, and extended inside the home.

The cause is still under investigation.

The home appears to have suffered extensive damage, but an estimate has not yet been determined.

The home is not a total loss and is salvageable Battalion Chief Cook said.
