MURRAY, Utah, May 14, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews battled a two-alarm warehouse fire in Murray on Thursday night.

The blaze occurred in the area of 4200 S. 300 West, near the Humane Society of Utah, which is at 4242 S. 300 West.

Murray Fire Department Captain Travis Bodtcher said crews were dispatched at 8:57 p.m. and on arrival smoke and flames were showing on the south side of the building going through the roof.

Crews made a defensive attack on the abandoned building, Bodtcher said, but will not send personnel inside until daylight.

“You will see smoke in the area throughout the night but we will have crews here tonight watching the fire,” Bodtcher added.

No one has been injured as a result of the blaze.

At this time there is no exact extent of damages, Bodtcher said.

The cause of the fire is not known at this early stage.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
