(KSL News) A fire that forced five people out of their home is still smouldering this morning.
Fire investigators don't know how it started, but they do know why it spread so quickly.
Brandon Thueson, Deputy Fire Marshall, Ogden City Fire Dept: "The way they constructed in that time period. There're openings in the walls from basically the basement to the attic. Just provides a fast area for the fire to spread through."
Neighboring homes had to be evacuated.
All five residents made it out of the house safely and are with family this morning.
