Fire investigators are trying to figure out what sparked an intense fire at a car storage facility. The building and six cars were destroyed in the Monday afternoon fire.
Ogden Fire spokesman Deputy Chief Eric Bauman says fortunately the fire started when no one was inside the 7th and Wall Avenue building. “A worker had just gone outside when the worker heard an explosion and then turned around and saw the flames.” Bauman says when firefighters arrived the building was “fully engulfed.”
A warehouse that stored, among other items, tanks filled with natural gas, was destroyed in an explosive fire Monday.
Just before 1:30 p.m., crews were called to C & G Global Inc., in the 700 block of Wall Avenue, on a report of a large fire, said Ogden Deputy Fire Chief Eric Bauman. An employee working in the building had stepped outside to load a truck, Bauman said. While outside, he heard an explosion from inside the building.
As firefighters battled the fire, there were several explosions inside the large warehouse because of the natural gas tanks, Bauman said.
