Some 30 firefighters battled a Draper house fire that caused approximately $20,000 in damages. The incident occurred in the area of 13239 S. Bear Hollow Drive (1190 East) and was first reported just before 8:15 p.m. Thursday. Bart Vawdrey, Battalion Chief for Draper City Fire Department, told Gephardt Daily there was minimal smoke showing on arrival. “We gained entry into the house, found a small fire in one of the bedrooms,” Vawdrey said. “We had the fire under control in about 10 minutes. We were able to keep the smoke damage to a minimum because the doors were closed to all the bedrooms, it kept the fire contained to one room, the smoke damage was very minimal down the hallway.”
