Unified Fire crews remain at scene of doused 2-alarm fire at Salt Lake Community College Redwood Road campus


TAYLORSVILLE, Utah, June 23, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Two Unified Fire Authority crews remain on the scene that sparked just after 5 p.m. Monday at the Salt Lake Community College Redwood Road campus.

“We will remain through tonight, putting out hot spots as they become visible,” UFA spokesman Ryan Love told Gephardt Daily.

Love estimated that about 70% of the structure, the Applied Technology Building, had been destroyed or heavily damaged. The 39,000-square-foot building had been undergoing renovation.

Reports have said that the fire started on the roof, but Love said that cannot yet be confirmed because the roof cannot safely support investigators to check it out. Part of the roof caved in, Love said. Aerial drones will be sent up for an initial look, he said.

“We have an investigative team coming in tomorrow,” Love said. “Until that point, we won’t have any idea of the origin or the cause.”

No injuries were reported as a result of the fire.
