LAYTON — Layton fire crews were able to douse a mobile home fire in a minimal amount of time, with minimal damage to the structure.

The fire was reported just before noon on Saturday in the Rolling Hills Mobile Home Park at 234  Engstrom Way, according to Layton Fire spokesman Doug Bitton.

When fire crews arrived, they found a passerby attacking the fire with a garden hose. Bitton said they didn’t know who the Good Samaritan was, but applauded his efforts.

Crews were able to hold damage to the home’s exterior. The deck and patio had significant damage, Bitton said.

No one was at home at the time of the fire, but a dog and two cats were inside. The animals were rescued and the dog was given a little oxygen, Bitton said. All three animals are doing fine and were given to a friend who arrived on scene.

“The fire was controlled in approximately five minutes from the arrival of fire crews. It was a significant save,” Bitton said.

The fire was determined by fire investigators to originate from improper placement of smoking discards.

CLEARFIELD — A Clearfield pediatrician has been arrested and booked on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor after police say he downloaded child pornography on his personal computer. Dr.Taylor Steven Jerman, 34, of Clearfield was taken into custody on Friday at 2 a.m. according to Assistant Clearfield Police Chief Mike Stenquist. He is being held in the Davis County Jail without bond on eight counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. After a two-month investigation, officers with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at the Pinnacle Apartment, 1100 S. 2000 East, where Jerman lives, according to a press release from the Clearfield Police Department. ICAC officers said they found hundreds of images containing child pornography on his personal computer. None were found on his work computer. Police don't know if any local children were victims and are still investigating the case. The Davis County Attorney's Office will screen the case before filing charges. Jerman is employed by Intermountain Clinic in Layton and is also affiliated with Intermountain Northern Utah Pediatrics in Ogden, according to the clinic's website.
