VIDEO: A fire Friday evening destroyed a cabin in a gated community at Parley's Canyon, firefighters reported.
Crews were called to the blaze about 6 p.m. in the cabin in the Mount Aire community off of I-80, Unified Fire Authority spokesman Matthew McFarland said.
Limited access into the area on a single-lane, winding canyon road prevented more than two fire engines from making it to the blaze, McFarland said. The cabin was fully engulfed when they arrived within 15 minutes of the call.
However, crews were able to quickly suppress the fire, he said.
Though the area is remote, McFarland said he applauds the gated community for keeping a large water holding tank and fire hydrants throughout so firefighters could "quickly establish a water supply."
No one was home at the time, he said.
