Wind, Heat Makes Utah's Brian Head Fire Hard to Contain

The Brian Head Fire in Utah grew to nearly 11,000 acres on Thursday, June 22. Evacuation orders have been issued for the areas of Horse Valley, Clear Creek, Beaver Dam and Panguitch Lake, while the town of Brian Head remained under evacuation.

According to incident reports, strong southwesterly winds and extreme heat have created “extreme fire behavior,” making the fire difficult for firefighters to contain.

There have been reports of smoke in the air in several counties in Colorado, most likely a result of this fire. A large plume of smoke can be seen in this video. Credit: Utah Fire Info via Storyful
