GRANTSVILLE, Utah (AP) — Police are investigating a death in an apartment fire in Grantsville.

They say firefighters responded to the blaze in an apartment unit about 10 p.m. Saturday and found the unit fully engulfed in flames.

They later discovered one person dead in the apartment.

The name, age and gender of the person killed have not been released yet.

Police say it's not yet known how the fire started.

Firefighters from Tooele County crews helped douse the flames.

Residents of the adjoining apartments had safely evacuated before fire crews arrived, but it is unclear how many people have been displaced.

Friends and family of those affected by the fire were on scene offering to help Saturday night.
