Lt. Matt Johnson of the Spanish Fork Police Department said the fire started sometime around 2 a.m. Sunday morning in the area of 300 North and 200 East. All four people in the home were able to get out safely, and police evacuated residents of three neighboring houses as a precaution.
Firefighters were able to determine that the fire started somewhere in the home's kitchen, causing a roof to cave in. Johnson said the home was a total loss. The exact cause of the blaze is being investigated by Spanish Fork Fire and the State Fire Marshal's Office.
Johnson said the homeowner was treated on scene for smoke inhalation but did not have to be taken to the hospital. Utah Red Cross said it would assist the family with food and clothing.
