Fire destroys Lake Point family's home Monday

LAKE POINT, Tooele County — A family's home was destroyed in a fire Monday night.

Tooele County Sheriff's Sgt. Willard Gowans said two people called in about 9 p.m. after seeing flames coming out of the roof of a home near 8200 N. Mountain View Dr. The family members were able to escape and no-one was injured, but Gowans said the home was a total loss.

Firefighters were able to extinguish flames within 30 minutes. Fire damage is estimated at a minimum of $80,000 and probably more, Gowans said.

The fire is still under investigation. Firefighters have not determined the cause.
