Local News

UTAH COUNTY (News4Utah)- After days of rain, fire crews say both wildfires in Utah County are fully contained Monday.

Combined the fires burned nearly 121,000 acres.

Monday Oct. 08 UPDATE
Pole Creek:  102,231 Acres, 100% containment
Bald Mountain Fire: 18,620 acres, 100% containment 

Fire crews say they are working to restore the roads and land to pre-fire conditions.

“This work is specifically designed to minimize sediment delivery into streams and rivers and minimize gully and surface erosion,” a press release said.

Closures: The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache and Manti-La Sal National Forests implemented an area closure for the fire areas,
until further notice. The full closure order and map can be found under the closure tab on the Pole Creek Fire InciWeb page.
