(KSL News) Residents in Cove Fort are back home this morning.

The Dog Valley wildfire came within one-half mile of homes in Millard County yesterday, forcing residents to get out.

Crews battled the blaze and the evacuation was lifted at 10:30 last night.

The Dog Valley fire also shut down part of the freeway. Both lanes of I-15 re-opened before midnight.

Lightning started the fire Sunday.

The fire has burned about 10 thousand acres and is moving toward the northwest.

Officials say weather conditions are favorable for firefighters, but that could change if the wind picks up later tonight.

Their biggest challenge right now is accessing the fire through the area's rocky terrain.
