The remains of an older woman who is thought to be the owner of a pair of homes that were destroyed in a fire early on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, have been found, according to Spanish Fork police and fire departments, who made the discovery public on Wednesday. All day Wednesday, searchers combed through the home’s trash until discovered the remains at about 3:45 pm. The victim, whose identity has not been made public, has been asked to be identified by the Utah State Medical Examiner.
Around 6:36 a.m. on Tuesday, calls regarding a fire in the area of 2970 E. Somerset Village Way were answered by firefighters. According to Spanish Fork spokesman Nick Porter, they found one unit of the double home completely involved in flames when they arrived. The people on the adjacent side were swiftly evacuated, but they were unable to reach the owner of the burning unit. Porter claimed that because the first and second floors of the house collapsed into the basement, personnel were originally unable to enter that side of the house.
According to Spanish Fork police, the fire was out as of 4 p.m. on Tuesday, but personnel were still putting out some hot spots in the basement. Crews started clearing the house of debris, but because they thought the woman was still inside, they had to do it by hand, according to the police. According to Spanish Fork fire authorities, one firefighter who had been treated for heat exhaustion on the scene was subsequently released and is doing OK. Porter reported that there were no other inhabitants in the house.
