2 employees, 1 firefighter injured in Salt Lake business fire
SALT LAKE CITY — Two employees of a metal recycling plant along with a Salt Lake City firefighter were injured in a small but smoky fire Monday.
A little after 1 p.m., crews were called to Utah Metal Works, 805 W. Everett Ave. (1455 North), after a small fire broke out in the area where metal is recycled.
The fire was put out quickly, but it created a lot of smoke, said Salt Lake fire spokesman Jasen Asay. Two employees suffered smoke inhalation, one more seriously than the other, he said. Both were taken to local hospitals for treatment, one in serious condition, Asay said.
A Salt Lake City firefighter also had to be transported for possible broken fingers after his hand was injured while tying to get a hose from the fire truck to the fire.
