SALT LAKE CITY — Crews with the Salt Lake City Fire Department responded to a fire at a gas station Monday morning.

“The rapid response minimized damage and prevented any further fire spread,” SLC fire officials tweeted.
All southbound Redwood Road lanes and westbound North Temples lanes were closed while emergency crews were on scene, and the scene had cleared by 10 a.m. Monday.
No injuries were reported and the fire is under investigation. Police said the RV driver is cooperating with investigators.
