🔥House Fire Rescue🔥

Yesterday 7.18.22, Unified Fire and @sandy_fire_department responded to a 2-alarm house fire in @cottonwoodheights where a woman was trapped inside the home unable to self-extricate but able to isolate herself in her room by shutting the door which prevented the fire from entering.

Prior to arriving, nearby neighbors including a citizen driving by rushed into action to assist in locating this individual allowing firefighters to quickly make rescue efforts once on the scene.

As a precaution, the patient was transported to a nearby hospital in good condition. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Thank you again to Sandy City Fire Department and to all of those who assisted in locating the patient prior to our arrival!!!
