SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Fire Department responded to a garage fire Saturday night to start off the Fourth of July weekend.
The fire, located at 366 E. Williams Ave. was a detached garage to a single-family home, and it was first reported shortly before 8 p.m.
The family was not at home at the time of the fire. The garage fully involved when first responders arrived to the scene.
