A Nibley home was destroyed by fire Sunday.

The house at 2825 South 600 West was “fully engulfed” in flames when firefighters responded to the scene just after noon.

Cache County Assistant Fire Chief Rod Kearl said there were no fatalities or immediately apparent injuries, though the family was displaced. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but Kearl said it was likely accidental.

“It was a total loss,” Kearl said. “It was pretty intense.”

According to scanner traffic, a firefighter at the scene reported the collapse of part of the roof of the home. Around 1 p.m. the flames were extinguished on the exterior of the home, but visible flames could still be seen inside. At one point a fire commander declared it unsafe for any firefighters to enter the house. Kearl said there was concern of a potential collapse and risk to firefighters.

Kearl said firefighters from Cache County Fire, Wellsville, Paradise, Mendon, Logan, Smithfield and Hyrum were on scene to help. Many of the responders were volunteers.

“We had plenty of help,” Kearl said.
