04-27-22 This evening in kearns we had multiple fires, one of which we relied heavily on our neighbors at West Valley Fire (big thank you!) while our kearns crews were battling another.

This fire in particular broke out just before 6pm. The home was unoccupied at the time and the fire was fortunately contained to a single room, leaving the rest of the home untouched. The cause is currently under investigation.
