Firefighters rushed to the scene of a two-alarm blaze early Friday afternoon in southwest Salt Lake City.

No injuries were reported. Damage, initially feared heavy, turned out to be minor for the Reser's Fine Foods Inc. warehouse at 1811 W. 1700 South.

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.
