SOUTH WEBER, Utah (AP) - A South Weber home has burned to the ground in a fire aggravated by windy weather.

South Weber fire officials say the fire was reported Friday around 12:40 p.m.

Fire Chief Thomas Graydon says crews arrived to find one home completely engulfed in flames as high as 40 feet.

According to Graydon, wind caused some flames to jump onto a home next door.

A house on the other side was damaged from heat intensity.

Graydon says the fire also sparked a small brush fire in an adjacent field.

No injuries were reported.

A bystander was able to rescue a pet in the backyard of the home.

Officials estimate property damages to be at least $500,000.

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
