Salt Lake City firefighters rushed to the scene of an industrial site where stacks of wooden pallets reportedly were ablaze Thursday morning.

The fire was reported about 8 a.m. in the Rocky Mountain Distributing yard at 1665 N. Chicago Street (about 900 West). Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman Jasen Asay said the fire had begun to spread to a garage as crews to snuff the flames.

No injuries were reported, and the fire was under control by 8:49 a.m.

The site of the fire normally contains numerous vehicles as well as a cluster of metal buildings and stacks of the pallets, but no vehicles were reported lost.

Asay said the origin of the fire was a wood-burning stove in the area of the pallets.

A damage estimate was being developed.
