LAYTON, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Officials say an alert police officer saved a Layton woman from a burning home on Friday.

The officer said he saw smoke, when he arrived on scene and banged on door of the home on 1960 North 200 West at about 1:30 p.m.

When there was no answer, officials say the officer opened the door and yelled at people inside to get out.

A woman was in the basement and she was able to escape with her dog.

Another dog was also able to escape on its own into the backyard.

Layton Fire officials estimated damage to the home at $80-100,000.

Officials believe the fire started in a shed that was adjacent to the back of the house.

Officials say a neighbor also reported hearing explosion from the shed.
