Fire damages St. George home, displaces residents

ST. GEORGE — The Red Cross is helping two people after their home caught fire Saturday.

The fire broke out around 4 p.m. near 100 South and Main Street. The owner told firefighters she was taking a nap and woke up to the sound of smoke alarms and someone knocking on her door.

The homeowner was able to get out of the home quickly; neither she nor her roommate were injured.

A neighbor told investigators she witnessed a small series of explosions from the back porch area just before fire showed up, but a cause had not been determined Saturday night.
