PAYSON — Nine people were displaced by a house fire that did about $200,000 in damage in Payson on Monday afternoon, according to officials.

The blaze occurred just before 6 p.m. at 692 W. 500 South in Payson, according to Payson Fire Chief Scott Spencer. Four engines responded to the scene and the fire was put out before the entire home was destroyed, but Spencer said the damage to the garage and kitchen amounts to about $200,000.

Nine people were displaced in total — two adults and three children living upstairs, and two adults and two children living in the basement — but no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The Red Cross is assisting those who were displaced.
