MURRAY, Utah (AP) - Fire officials say a welding spark is believed to have caused a two-alarm blaze that injured a shop owner and gutted a mechanic shop overnight in Murray.

Murray Deputy Fire Marshal Pat Killion tells KSL-TV (http://bit.ly/1uXpJX2 ) a man was treated at University of Utah Hospital after firefighters were called about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday to find flames burning through the roof of the building near Interstate 15 and West 4500 South.

The man’s name wasn’t immediately made public. He was being treated for second-degree burns and smoke inhalation.

A neighboring church and a nearby business also were damaged while firefighters spent more than an hour dousing the fire.

Killion calls the mechanic shop a total loss.
