Fire Heavily Damages Two Homes in Salt Lake

Investigators are looking into the cause of a fire in Salt Lake that heavily damaged two homes Wednesday evening.

The blaze started at around 6:30 p.m. on Likini Street.

When fire crews arrived, a three-bedroom home was already burning.

The flames also damaged the house next door.
Fire officials believe as many as five residents lived in each house with multiple rooms being rented to tenants.

Nearby residents say they heard screams and saw one man trying to run back into the burning house.

"We see one house burning and thinking, 'Oh, messed up,'" said Salt Lake resident Jessteen Garin. "Everyone yelling, 'Get out of the house, get out of the house!'"

"I heard a bunch of popping from the back of the house, then a lot of people yelling to get out of the house," said Salt Lake resident Victor Vermudez.

Police officers had to handcuff and detain the owner of the house who tried to go back inside the home as it went up in flames.

Fire officials say no one was injured but a cat died in the fire.

Damage is estimated at more than $500,000 for both homes.
