By 12:20 p.m., the flames was contained to a section of sub-roofing space and had been doused. Additional crews dispatched by the second, precautionary alarm were released.

Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman Jasen Asay said the cause of the fire was under investigation, but it appeared related to an oven flue that may have overheated.
