(KSL News) A three-alarm fire in Sandy leaves four families homeless this morning.
Family members in the four-plex apartment building at 40th E. 8775 South were forced out in cold at about 1:30 this morning when the fire broke out.
Ron Reynolds/ Sandy Fire Dept.: "Upon arrival, our crews found the lower unit of a four-plex was heavily involved. At this time the fire is still under investigation."
Firefighters were able to get the fire out rather quickly, but they spent several hours mopping up hot spots.
The damage to the duplex was pretty extensive.
Only minor injuries of smoke inhalation and some scratches were reported.
The Red Cross has been notified and is taking care of those four families until they can find a new place to live.
