WEST JORDAN — A two-alarm fire ripped through a West Jordan home Tuesday night, destroying the attic, an attached garage and a shed. But firefighters' first priority was the family they thought was inside.

Hannah Cutler, who lives next door to the house near 3000 West and 7100 South, said other neighbors tried to get the family out before fire crews even arrived.

"My son and a couple other neighbors were in there trying to get the family out, and the family was trying to (tell them,) 'Let's get the hose and try to put it out,'" Cutler said.

But the fire was already progressing through the garage door, so Cutler said the Good Samaritans just hurried and got them out. Nobody was injured.

Investigators are still working to determine how the fire started.
