Firefighters: Murray house fire appears to be accidental

MURRAY, Utah - Firefighters said the cause of a fire at a Murray home early Friday morning appears to be an accident.

Flames were shooting from the back of the home near 260 E. 5900 S. when authorities arrived at about 4:30 a.m.

According to fire crews, the homeowner had been doing repairs on the porch which may have somehow caused the accidental fire.
