OGDEN, Utah (AP) - One person has been treated for minor smoke inhalation after a fire broke out Monday at the offices of the Standard-Examiner newspaper in Ogden.

Ogden Deputy Fire Chief Eric Bauman says the employee who suffered smoke inhalation was taken to a hospital. No other injuries were reported.

Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fire, which broke out in a baler room of the building’s warehouse.

Bauman says the building was evacuated and smoke damaged the entire north wing, which is about 50 feet tall.

He says the fire was “medium-sized” and was extinguished within about 10 minutes of fire crews arriving on scene.

Firefighters were still investigating and clearing smoke from the building early Monday afternoon.
