Bothwell home destroyed in fire

The sole resident of the home, Sandra Hood, 62, was able to get out and call for help at a neighbor’s , but the home at 12695 N. 10800 W. was fully engulfed when fire crews from Thatcher and Tremonton arrived on scene just after 3:30 a.m. The lack of fire hydrants in the area made it difficult to fight the fire, said Thatcher fire chief Alan Heiner.
