(KSL News) Whenever you leave your house, there's always a chance of something going wrong while you're away.
Unfortunately, that's what happened at a home in West Jordan.
Fire crews were called to 5012 Gaskill Way at about 11:00 last night.
They found flames pouring from the backside of the house, in the kitchen and patio areas.
No one was home at the time. Some pets were inside and firefighters were able to get all of them out.
Asst. Chief Brad Wardle/ West Jordan Fire Dept.: "The damage itself is considerable in the kitchen, but that can be rebuilt. And the contents of the other areas of the home, things in the living room, bedroom, we're going to get most of that stuff out of there relatively intact."
Firefighters were able to put the flames out relatively quickly, battling the fire from both the inside and the outside.
Investigators found no obvious clues to what caused the fire or exactly where it started.
