Fire officials say there is no doubt that a Tuesday night fire at an automobile repair shop was set deliberately - for the second time in two weeks.
Salt Lake County fire investigator Lt. Royce Haakenson said the same type of incendiary device was used to attempt to set fire to Mr. Brake, 6905 S. State, two weeks ago and Tuesday night. "The first time, it didn't work," he said.Firefighters were able to extinguish the 10:30 p.m. blaze within a few minutes, said Midvale Fire Chief Merrill Ross.
"A couch appears to be the point of origin," Ross said. Damages were estimated at $5,000. Officials are still investigating the arson.
