RICHVILLE, Utah (AP) -- When a Morgan County mobile home caught fire yesterday, a family of firefighters put it out.

Brett Carrigan responded to the call. His dad, Allen Carrigan, helped extinguish it, too, before returning to a brush fire.

And who lived at the mobile home? Chad Carrigan, their son and grandson. He's also a firefighter.

Chad Carrigan has six relatives who fight fires in Morgan County. They just didn't expect to save the home of a family member.
