TAYLORSVILLE — There was a lot of smoke but not a lot of fire was in the air at a condominium complex here Monday.
Smoke was reported at the Mt. View Condominiums, 4515 S. 1175 West, just before 9 a.m. The first arriving fire crews saw smoke coming from one of units and immediately called for a second alarm as a precaution, said Unified Fire Authority Capt. Clint Mecham.
But firefighters found just a small fire in a wall, quickly put the blaze out and canceled the second alarm.
Mecham called it a "relatively small fire" and noted that the biggest challenge was stringing together enough hose from the fire hydrants to the condo. He said, however, there was a "huge potential" for the situation to have turned out much worse than it did.
The cause of the fire was still being investigated Monday.
