Crews contained the fire, and it did not spread to other buildings, said Park City spokeswoman Phyllis Robinson.

Deputy Fire Marshall Kurt Simister said three workers on the construction site accidentally started the blaze when they tried to burn scrap materials in a fireplace. The men managed to escape the building without injury, and the fire did not harm anyone else.
