This is an interesting video. It is taken from the house next door by what I assume is a mounted security camera. It shows the first wisps of smoke coming from 2161 Lincoln Avenue in Ogden, Utah just after 6:30 PM on Tuesday. It also captures the homeowner frantically screaming for water as the fire grows.
At first it wasn't clear who the man was yelling to. After further checking, it could be that he was directing his screams across the street to someone at the Ogden Public Safety Center at 2186 Lincoln Avenue. It houses the Ogden Police Department, Ogden Fire Department and Weber Area Consolidated Dispatch (911 center). Station 1 is at the far end of the complex from the home that burned. It faces 22nd Street.

Ogden firefighters quickly arrived at the house and had the fire out within a few minutes, said Deputy Chief Chad Tucker.
One man, the only resident, told firefighters that the sound of his smoke alarm going off woke him up, Tucker said.
Once the fire was out and firefighters could start inspecting the damage, they found that two of the man’s cats had died.
