Fire Destroys Salt Lake City Construction Site


By Paul Johnson

Salt Lake City, Utah (CNN) - Huge flames and a bright orange glow were seen as fire destroyed a Salt Lake City construction site.
No one was hurt when the unfinished apartment building caught fire.
Firefighters are still trying to figure out exactly how the fire started -- since the structure should have been wet from two days of rain.
Investigators say the construction company told them no workers were on site Sunday, and no active power or heat sources were believed to be there.
The fire caused an estimated one-and-a-half-million dollars in damage.
Police arrested one man at the scene they say was posing as a firefighter -- and they say the man has been seen at other fires recently.
