SALT LAKE CITY — An abandoned home has been completely destroyed following a fire in West Valley City.

Firefighters say the blaze started early Sunday morning and ripped through the building located behind an apartment complex.

Authorities say fire was particularly difficult to extinguish because the house had several additions with extra roofs.

No one was inside or injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
