Utah County Sheriff’s Office said so far there have been no reports of injuries. Officials did not have information about potential property damage.

Elk Ridge Mayor Ty Ellis lifted the evacuation order for residents later in the night. He said residents may return to their home, but they must park in the driveways. At this time, Loafer Canyon Road is only open to residents.
