Sex-addiction treatment center catches on fire again

SPANSIH FORK, Utah (AP) — The Utah County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after firefighters responded to a report of a building engulfed in flames for the second time.

KUTV-TV reports ( ) that firefighters responded to the Birdseye treatment center, a residential treatment program for sexual behavior problems and pornography addiction, Monday morning.

Utah County Fire Marshall Jack Snow says the fire was suspicious because there was no electricity or gas hooked up in the building, leaving ignition sources scarce.

This is the second time the building has caught fire in the last month. The burned building is one of several in the area that belong to Birdseye, and was being remodeled last month when it was severely burned.

It was awaiting demolition when the fire occurred Monday.
