SALT LAKE CITY - Investigators are now working to determine what sparked a 2-alarm fire at a home in west Salt Lake City.

Fire crews were called to a house near 1300 S. and 900 W. just before 7:30 a.m.

Officials said the fire started in the garage and burned two cars inside.

The flames also claimed a shed and threatened an abandoned home on the property.

The house was left with a small amount of fire damage.
