(KSL News) Thick, black smoke hovered over the I-215 freeway tonight, near 4150 W. 700 South.

The smoke came from a junkyard fire. Employees at Rio's Auto Recycling say an electrical problem may have sparked it.

Firefighters evacuated about 15 people, but no one was hurt, there was no major damage, and firefighters kept it from spreading to other buildings and a field.
