SANDY — A fire destroyed one home and damaged another Thursday night, officials said.

Firefighters were called at 8:40 p.m. about a home on 1210 E. Elswood Ave. fully engulfed in flames, said Sandy Fire Chief Derek Maxfield.

Crews worked to protect a home next door, where outdoor siding was melting, Maxfield said. That home suffered about $15,000 in damage.

There were no injuries in the fire. Maxfield said he isn't sure how many people live at the destroyed home, which was being rented.
