Utah Wildfire Destroys 1 Home, Evacuates 3,100 Homes

Officials in Saratoga Springs, Utah say a wildfire that prompted the evacuation of about 3,100 homes on Sunday destroyed one home outside the city and damaged 12 others. The Knolls Fire started south of the community on the shore of Utah Lake on Sunday. The city says it spread to about 15.6 square miles in strong winds and heat and was 25 percent contained as of Monday. Meanwhile, a wildfire sparked by fireworks in the Lehi area forced out residents of houses and an apartment building early Sunday before crews managed to turn back the blaze as it encroached on a neighborhood.
