    Default Fire at Ogden Plant

    Fire at Ogden plant burns several buildings

    Team coverage

    There has been an explosion at a warehouse near 555 West and 12th Street in Ogden.

    Ogden City Fire Marshal Matt Schwenk told KSL Newradio says workers at Allied Metals were cutting up a railroad car at about 10:20 a.m. Thursday when flying sparks ignited a grass fire. Wind helped spread the fire quickly. Dark, black smoke could be seen for miles.

    The blaze spread to several buildings. Five buildings have been destroyed. The owner told firefighters he had about 500 gallons of fuel in the area in big 55-gallon drums.

    Schwenk says all 12 employees at the plant are safe.

    He says a good portion of the fire is out, but it could take several hours for the fire to be completely out. They believe the fire is contained and shouldn't spread to any nearby buildings. The fire burned between 1/2 an acre to an acre of land. We have not been told of any evacuations.

    If you are in the Ogden area, be aware that 12th Street is closed between 1200 West and Wall Avenue.
