Couple Escape When Business Catches Fire
A man and his wife escaped injury early Friday by crawling out of a window and down a ladder after a fire broke out in their business.
Salt Lake firefighters were called about 4:20 a.m. to D and D Waste Control, 2815 W. Andrew Ave. (1504 South), and found light smoke coming from the large building, said Salt Lake deputy fire chief Devin Villa.
Damage to the motor home was estimated at $180,000. Damage to the rest of the contents of the building, mainly smoke damage, was estimated at $50,000.
The building has a bedroom on the second floor that the owners use as a home.
