SOUTH SALT LAKE -- Indoor sprinklers helped keep damage to a minimum during a fire at a South Salt Lake business Monday night.

Fire officials say the sprinklers at Vortex Overhead Doors at 227 S. West Temple doused most of the fire before firefighters arrived around 10 p.m. They say a fire was burning near a truck parked inside the facility.

That truck was destroyed, and most of the business suffered only water and smoke damage. Damage is estimated at $80,000 to $90,000.
