MAGNA -- A two-alarm house fire gutted a home in Magna Wednesday morning.

Crews were called to the scene just after 7:00 a.m. When they arrived they found the home almost completely engulfed in flames. They were able to quickly knock down the fire, but the interior was seriously damaged.

A neighbor said the woman living there just barely had time to escape the fast moving flames.

"She said she had just dropped her kids off at daycare and went in to take a shower to get ready for work and heard some loud noises. She opened the bathroom door and it was just pure black, so it went that fast," neighbor Margo Smith told KSL.

The woman suffered some smoke inhalation and was taken to the hospital to be treated.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation.
