SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Dec. 5, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Some 25 Salt Lake firefighters are on the scene of a blaze at Palace Meat Company near Trolley Square Thursday afternoon.

Salt Lake City Fire Department Captain Adam Archuleta told Gephardt Daily that crews responded to a call of a 1-alarm “small contents fire” at the meat company at 715 E. 500 South at approximately 4 p.m.

  1. Thank you for investigating and sharing. As a resident of the neighborhood, it was really alarming to see that many fire trucks and not really have any idea why.
