SALT LAKE CITY - Fire crews are working to contain a fire at an abandoned building near 1250 S. and 900 W. Friday morning.

Crews arrived to find the building fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters have taken a defensive stance on the fire for fears the building could collapse.

Authorities have not said what sparked the fire at this time.

Fire officials said there was also a fire at this same location a little over a year ago.

That fire was caused by renovation work in the detached garage.
