Can you spot the hazards?
3 Alarm Fire in Millcreek, Ut.
Yesterday around 5pm, our Millcreek crews were dispatched to a large structure fire near 1300 E. Miller Ave.
3 alarms were immediately struck due to the size and complexity of the fire.
Overall, we utilized nearly 60+ firefighters and 20+ apparatus from 6 surrounding agencies.
1 patient was transported to a nearby hospital in alpha condition.
Cause: unknown. Investigators are standing by to determine cause once the scene is stable.
The fire is currently under control, however, fire operations and road closures will continue throughout the day and possibly tomorrow as well.
What burned: 1 large apartment complex under construction + equipment, 14 small businesses in nearby strip mall. Total damage and dollar amount tbd.
We’d like to extend a thank you to all agencies who assisted including:
South Salt Lake Fire
Salt Lake City Fire
Murray City Fire
West Jordan Fire
West Valley Fire
Unified Police Department
