(KSL News) -- The South Salt Lake apartment complex where fire forced residents to jump from balconies last month had another fire.

Firefighters responded to the Mountain Shadow Apartments last night to find fire had damaged the laundry and mailbox building. They say the fire appears to have started in a garbage can.

Investigators say it may be suspicious because two smaller fires were set at the complex as well.

A fire last month at the complex forced two mothers to drop their children from windows. No one was seriously hurt. Investigators said a child playing with matches sparked that blaze.
