Manzanita Fire continues to burn at 5000 acres, evacuation warning in place


Brian Head residents alone accounted for roughly half of the 1,500 people forced to evacuate since the fire was sparked by a man burning weeds on June 17.

Those statistics don't count any of the fires that began burning in June, including the 27 fires now burning across 11 states.

CNN included the Brain Head Fire in its roundup on the "blistering hot spell" thats working its way through the western United States.

CAL FIRE said on June 22 that firefighters have responded to 1,878 wildfires, burning over 19,000 acres, since January 1, representing a threefold increase compared with the same time a year ago.

The Utah Department of Public Safety released the 911 call made by the man who apparently started the destructive Brian Head Fire. Additionally, the estimated cost of fighting the Brian Head Fire so far has cost over $7.0 million. High temperatures, dry conditions and strong winds have started blazes and fanned flames in the region.

With 357 personnel assigned including: (Air Attack) 1 Type III Helicopter, 4 Type I Air Tankers, 1 VLAT (Very Large Air Tanker), 6 SEAT planes (Single Engine Air Tanker), and multiple overhead, fire crews continue to gain control.

As fire containment lines increase on portions of the fire, the assigned resources will be shifted to more active portions of the fire.

The fire is one of several burning up thousands of acres across the U.S. Southwest.

The blaze broke out late on Monday afternoon and quickly grew to almost 1.5 square miles (200 hectares), the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said.

No homes were destroyed, and most evacuations were canceled after a few hours.

A wildfire in southwestern Colorado has burned at least one home and forced the evacuation of about 140 others, as well as a busy campground.

Over in Utah, the Brian Head Fire, which started 10 days ago, has grown to about 46,000 acres, and Mother Nature isn't helping the crews. There are now 525 firefighters and personnel on site with no injuries to date. Evacuations remain in Mayer and other towns as firefighters battle a blaze that's about burned 32 square miles (83 square kilometers) of dense shrubbery. About 250 residents were ordered from their homes in the area of Santa Margarita after the blaze erupted Monday, but on Tuesday night they were told they could return home. The Frye Fire is about 70 miles northeast of Tucson, the second-largest city in Arizona.

Ongoing firefighting efforts kept numerous trails and roads closed throughout the Dixie National Forest. The fire was 10% contained Tuesday morning, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The fire remains under investigation and no citations have been issued.
