SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Two people have died after an RV fire broke out on Wednesday morning.
The Salt Lake City Fire Department has confirmed two deaths and one person suffering from smoke inhalation due to the incident.
The fire broke out around 7 a.m. near the area of 1775 West 200 South, which officials say is an industrial area. When fire crews arrived, they say flames could be seen burning as high as 30 feet into the air. Crews were able to extinguish the flames through the RV’s backside.
The exact cause of the fire is still unknown, although fire crews say they’ve seen an increase of fire reports caused by malfunctioning heat sources during chilly winter temperatures.
