Tooele home damaged from fire

A Tooele home was damaged from a fire Saturday night.

Bucky Whitehouse, assistant chief of the Tooele City Fire Department, said a neighbor reported seeing smoke and flames coming out of the front of the building on Brooke Avenue.

In three minutes, firefighters and engines arrived on the scene and the fire was extinguished about 10 minutes later, he said.

Two rooms of the house were seriously damaged, and much of the rest of the house suffered smoke damage, Whitehouse said.

No one was at home at the time. The fire was determined to have started in the front bedroom of the house, though the cause has not yet been concluded, he said.
