OGDEN — An Ogden apartment fire Monday night is estimated to have caused $35,000 in damages and displaced residents from 12 units.

Crews responded to the structure fire at 234 24th St. at 6:51 p.m. and reported smoke coming from one apartment in the complex, according to Ogden Deputy Fire Chief Eric Bauman.

Residents of all of the apartments were told to evacuate, according to Bauman, and the fire was quickly extinguished.

Bauman said the cause of the blaze was still unknown Monday night and is under investigation by the Fire Marshal's office.

The fire brought 18 firefighters from Ogden and Riverdale fire departments who responded with two ladder trucks, two engines, one paramedic rescue, one ambulance, Bauman said.

No one was injured in the blaze and the Red Cross was on scene Monday night to assist the displaced residents, according to authorities.
