Firefighters battle a mulch fire in South Salt Lake at 3600 South and 5th West.
Early this morning fire crews were still out monitoring the situation after a massive fire shut down several roads and caused some major backups along interstate 15. Authorities say the fire started at a mulch yard a few blocks away at around 3600 South and 5th West in South Salt Lake. The thick smoked forced the shut down of the Interstate 15 southbound lanes, westbound lanes on interstate 80, and eastbound lanes on the 201. There are no reports of any injuries at this time.
