SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah, June 21, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — An electronics parts and supply business was destroyed in a South Salt Lake fire Thursday morning.
Firefighters were called to Ra-elco, at 2780 S. Main St., at about 6:25 a.m. When they arrived, they found the business engulfed in smoke and flames.
South Salt Lake firefighters assumed defensive positions around the structure, which collapsed shortly after 7 a.m.
A longtime patron of the store told Gephardt Daily the business was loaded with rare and hard to find electronics equipment. He said the inventory was irreplaceable.
The fire kicked up a column of smoke that could be seen throughout the Valley.
The cause of the blaze has yet to be determined.
There are no reports of injuries.
