SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Crews responded to a fire in a vacant building on the property of the old Raging Waters Park in Salt Lake City.

The structure is located just east of the water slides and adjacent to the Jordan River.

It burned out of control for about five minutes until Salt Lake City Fire Department arrived.

With seven engines and a few dozen firefighters deployed they were able to put the fire out in about 20 minutes.

Investigators are looking into whether squatters in the vacant building started the fire.

No injuries were reported.
