(KSL News) Firefighters put out a fire at a self-storage facility located at 210 East Gordon Lane in Murray this morning.

The fire started in a single unit, but crews had to break into surrounding units to fight the flames.

A man who runs a commercial painting business lost his dog and all of his work supplies.

Capt. Jay Torgersen, Unified Fire Authority: "Everything was destroyed inside the unit, and he said that was his trailer, and all his supplies for painting were in that unit."

The man had come to pick up his supplies when he saw the flames. The man's dog also died in the fire, but officials are not sure how it got into the unit. The paint supplies gave the fire plenty of fuel, but firefighters managed to keep the flames from spreading to nearby units.

However, two other units did sustain some water and smoke damage. Investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.
