A structure fire in Murray on Thursday afternoon affected traffic in the area of 4500 South and 200 West and sent up a large plume of smoke at about 1:30 p.m.
The fire started in an abandoned building in a former steel company campus at 260 West on 4500 South, according to Murray fire spokesman Mike Dykman.
Smoke from the blaze had stopped traffic on 4500 South near the area, he said. Crews from Murray, Unified Fire Authority, West Jordan and South Salt Lake had the fire out in about 30-45 minutes, Dykman said.
No one was injured in the fire.
The cause is under investigation, but “it‘s obviously a suspicious fire,” Dykman said.
