Tragic Discovery: Utah Woman and Dog Found Dead in Burning Storage Unit

Salt Lake City, UT (Feb 18, 2023) – Tragedy struck in Salt Lake City this week when a woman and her dog were found dead in a storage unit that had caught fire. The woman, identified as 33-year-old Sarah Smith, had been renting the unit for the past two months.

The fire department was called to the scene after a passerby noticed smoke coming from the unit. Upon arrival, firefighters found the unit engulfed in flames and were able to extinguish the fire. After the fire was put out, Smith and her dog were found dead inside the unit.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but authorities believe it may have been caused by an electrical malfunction. Smith’s family has been notified of her death and are asking for privacy during this difficult time.

This is a heartbreaking story and a reminder of the importance of safety when it comes to storing items in a storage unit. It is important to make sure that all electrical items are in good working order and that the unit is properly ventilated. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Smith’s family during this difficult time. – Wasatch Defense Lawyers does not represent any parties mentioned above, nor is it our intent to represent any of the parties.
