An electric scooter parked in a hallway on the building’s third floor caught fire around 12:42 p.m. Wednesday. There were approximately 140 people in the building at the time and all were safely evacuated.

The Salt Lake City Fire Department responded and quickly put out the fire, which was restricted to the scooter and caused minor damage to some floor tiles. A disaster cleanup company is responding to clear an electrical smoke smell from the building.

A preliminary investigation found the fire appears to be related to the lithium ion battery system on the scooter, which belonged to a student, according to U Fire Marshal Clint Haymond. The scooter was not being charged at the time the battery caught fire.
