MIDVALE, Utah (AP) -- Fire investigators are now trying to figure out why a Midvale apartment complex started on fire over the weekend.

The blaze started yesterday at the Chelsea Park Apartments at 7351 South Catalpa Street.

When crews arrived, fire officials say smoke and flames could be seen coming from the manager's office, which is where the blaze started.

Fire officials say 80 people were forced to evacuate. However, no one was hurt. Firefighters were able to quickly put out the blaze, which caused around $100,000 in damage.

Investigators are now treating the fire as suspicious.
