NIBLEY, Utah (AP) — Officials say a fire at a storage facility in northern Utah caused at least $1.5 million in damage over the weekend.

The Deseret News reports the blaze at the facility in Nibley started Saturday night, when a man was working on a car inside a unit and had a mechanical problem.

Hyrum assistant fire chief Blake Christensen says the blaze destroyed 25 units.

Crews from at least 10 fire departments fought the blaze and put it out within 45 minutes.

Christensen says Utah state fire marshal investigators were on scene after the fire. He did not immediately know if charges were possible in connection to the blaze.
