VIDEO: A couple was spared after their home in Veyo caught fire early Tuesday morning, when a semitruck driver spotted the flames and not only woke the pair – but went into the home and carried one of them outside to safety. Shortly after 3 a.m., a structure fire was reported on Center Street in Veyo involving a home where flames could be seen coming from the corner of the residence. A semitruck driver was heading west on Center toward state Route 18 when he saw the flames and called 911, Veyo Fire Chief Chris Larsen told St. George News. Larsen said when the driver saw flames coming from the rear of the home but saw no one outside, he feared any occupants still inside may be asleep and unaware that a fire was burning in their home.
