SHARE Fire creates smoke at Salt Lake apartment site

A two-alarm fire this morning created a lot of smoke but little fire.

Crews were called to the Kingswood Apartment Community, 1754 W. 1300 North, just after 7 a.m. A fire started in the laundry room of a basement apartment, said Salt Lake fire spokesman Scott Freitag. A cause had not been determined by Friday morning, but it did not appear to be suspicious, he said.

Everybody in the complex, about 50 people, was evacuated. Damage is estimated at $75,000, mostly from smoke and water damage.

One man suffered a cut on his arm while trying to break a glass case containing a fire extinguisher, Freitag said. The man was treated at the scene.
