KAMAS, Summit County — A cabin in Weber Canyon in Summit County was destroyed in a blaze Tuesday evening.

Summit County Fire Chief Scott Anderson said there was “extreme difficulty” getting to the location quickly due to snow and weather conditions up the canyon.

“It had too big of a headstart on us,” Anderson said. “Before we got here the roof had already started to cave in and the floors had already started to cave in.”
