MALAD — Investigators are working to find the cause of the fire that destroyed a Malad home, all captured on video Tuesday.

Officials say the Malad Volunteer Fire Department responded to Grandview Drive around 6:15 a.m. Crews battled the fire nearly five hours after the initial call. Firefighters continued to mop up hotspots well into the afternoon.

An elderly woman lived in the house, and officials say she was standing outside as emergency crews arrived.

A firefighter tells the fire appears to have originated in the attic above the garage.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office, which is conducting the investigation, was unavailable for comment Wednesday.
