(KSL News) Employees of a company in Salt Lake City were evacuated early this morning when machinery caught on fire.
Around 2 a.m. fire crews were called to Envirotech near 1000 West and North Temple. Firefighters say the fire was started by a process that makes polymer moldings.
Fire sprinklers in the building kicked on and put the flames out by the time fire crews arrived. Everything returned to normal shortly after that. No one was injured.
While firefighters were finishing responding to that fire, the same crew was called to a fire burning at a shed near 800 West and 800 South.
Our photographer was there as crews started fighting the blaze. The flames caught a fence, trees and power lines on fire.
No one was injured. No word on what caused that fire.
