Firefighters from West Valley and Salt Lake City responded because the fire was in a commercial area. Investigators believe the blaze was an accident.

Battalion Chief Stan Varney/ West Valley City Fire: "They have deep fat fryers inside this particular truck and it appears as though one of the fryers was left on, which caused the grease to start the fire, which caused the truck to start on fire."

Ten catering trucks are housed in the building, but the fire was contained to only one. Damage is estimated at around $40 thousand.
