SALT LAKE CITY — A late night Sunday fire led to a roof collapse at a vacant building, but firefighters were able to keep the blaze from spreading to other structures.

The fire was reported at 11:10 p.m. at 204 W. 2100 South, where heavy flames and smoke were erupting from the roof of the building, said Salt Lake fire spokesman Jasen Asay.

Crews prevented the blaze from spreading elsewhere, and after the roof collapsed, they were able to enter the building and extinguish the fire.

There were no injuries. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but Asay said the owner told investigators that the burglar alarm was tripped just prior to the fire being reported.

The building, south of Club Expose, is one of three structures that are connected and owned by the same man, Asay said.
