(KSL News) An early morning fire that destroyed a Salt Lake City apartment is being blamed on a space heater.

Investigators say it was accidental. The space heater was too close to a bed.

When crews arrived at 1300 West 900 South smoke was billowing out of the windows, but they quickly put out the fire.

Officials say the home was divided into four apartments. All 11 residents got out safely. The apartment where the fire started is considered a complete loss. Another apartment has major smoke damage, and two basement apartments have water damage.
