Crews fight brush fire near NSA building, Camp Williams

Local News

BLUFFDALE (ABC4 News) – Multiple agencies responded to fire near an NSA data center and Camp Williams Monday evening.

Kieth Garner of the Unified Fire Authority said it started as a small brush fire that grew to about 10 acres in size.

Garner said the fire was sparked by some construction happening just west of Redwood Road and south of Camp Williams.

It started on private property and traveled uphill with the wind towards the end of the NSA property and then went through some of Camp Williams property up to Watch Road on Camp Williams, according to Garner.

Investigators said the fire could have been caused due to a civilian nearby–where a water tank was being installed for some future development, according to Garner.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

No other structures were threatened, but Garner said the fire was about 500 yards away from the NSA building.

Firefighters quickly contained the blaze and tended to hot spots in the area.

Fourteen units out of Bluffdale and Unified fire responded to the fire. Garner said crews will be out until dark to make sure the fire is totally out.
