(KSL News) The Neola North fire in northeastern Utah is about 65 percent contained.

It has burned about 44,000 acres since June 29. Three people died while trying to escape the flames.

Portions of a power pole are now part of the investigation into what caused the wildfire. A staffer for Moon Lake Electric Association says the pole's cross arm is now in a locked shed at the request of federal agents. Officials won't comment on the cause of the deadly fire, but they do not believe weather was a factor.
