Wildfires – Utah, USA

A wildfire near a southern Utah ski town that has forced hundreds of people to evacuate has doubled in size in high winds and drove out residents of 400 additional homes, authorities said Thursday. New evacuations were ordered east of the fire’s epicenter in the tiny mountain town of Brian Head. The fire has spread to 17 square miles (44 square kilometers).

The blaze is one of several burning in the U.S. West as extreme heat makes it difficult for firefighters to tamp down the flames.
