MURRAY, Utah -- Fire crews extinguished a fire in an abandoned building that went to two alarms Saturday.

Fire Chief Jon Harris of the Murray Fire Department said a passerby called 911 around 4:45 p.m. to report a fire in a field next to a building.

The fire was in the area of 4300 South Commerce Drive, and the smoke was visible to many drivers on I-15, as shown in the video above.

Harris said about 30 firefighters responded and quickly got the fire under control. He said the cause is unknown, but they believe the fire began in the nearby field and burned about a half of an acre before it caught the building on fire.

Harris said the building is abandoned and there were no injuries.
