ROY — Multiple fire agencies responded to a fire Saturday afternoon in Roy

Crews were dispatched to a call of a house fire located at 6074 S. 3100 West around 1:33 p.m., according to Weber Area Dispatch

Fire crews found a fire in the back of the home and were able to extinguish the fire in about 25 minutes, according to Roy Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Comeau.

Crews broke down a back wall to extinguish the fire before inspecting the rest of the home, and there was smoke and heat damage to other parts of the home, Comeau said. 

Comeau said the home was vacant but does have an owner. No one was in the home at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire was unknown and under investigation as of Saturday evening, Comeau said. The state fire marshal’s office has been called to assist in determining the cause of the fire, Comeau said. 

Fire crews from Roy, Clinton, Riverdale and Weber Fire District responded to the house fire.
