SALT LAKE CITY -- Investigators are looking for the cause of an early-morning fire at a vacant building in downtown Salt Lake City.

Crews fought heavy smoke and flames while trying to save the building near 1900 South and 900 West just after 2 a.m.

Firefighters say the fire was not easy to bring under control because the building had been remodeled several times and contained old restaurant equipment, like refrigerators and ovens, which slowed them down.

Officials estimate damage to the building at $100,000 or more.

No one was injured.
