(KSL News) A fire at an apartment complex in West Jordan forces dozens of residents from their homes.

Fire crews responded after receiving a call that smoke was coming from the second floor of the building at 7865 S. 1851 West. Eight units were evacuated as firefighters worked to find the fire.

Brad Wardle/ West Jordan Fire Department: "Had a hard time finding the fire. There was a lot of smoke initially. We, of course, had everyone evacuated and then proceeded trying to find that fire. It was not in the attic. When we found it, it was still located in the wall, and I think we have it contained in the wall area right now."

The power was shut off so that crews could douse the flame. It is now under control and most of those residents are back in their homes.

No one was hurt, and there was no substantial damage.

The cause is now under investigation.
