BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - Eleven families are displaced Monday night after a fire tore through an apartment complex in Brigham City.

According to Brigham City Police Lt. Dennis Vincent, the blaze started out as a mattress fire that was reported to Brigham City fire officials at about 7:30 p.m. but quickly spread to eight other units in the building, located at 580 N. Main Street.

Eight households in the building were permanently displaced, with four units in the building completely destroyed. Vincent said flames were burning through the roof and through the windows.

Three other families in an adjoining building also were temporarily displaced Monday night as the fire caused the power in that building to be shut off, Vincent said. No one was injured.

Vincent said volunteers from Utah Red Cross and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were working to find lodging for the displaced families Monday night.

Brigham City Fire extinguished the fire with the help of crews from Corinne, Honeyville and Willard.

Firefighters were mopping up the scene Monday night and an investigation into the cause of the blaze will start the next morning, Vincent said.
