SALT LAKE CITY — The Coal Hollow Fire in Utah County grew to 6,661 acres Wednesday, prompting evacuations and pre-evacuation notices for some area residents, according to officials.
The fire was zero percent contained as of Wednesday afternoon and is burning in southeast Utah County, near U.S. Highway 6.
The Bear Trap Fire that began in late July on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation has now burned more than 2,000 acres as of Wednesday morning, according to officials.
Crews continue to fight wildfires across the state, including the Hill Top Fire in Sanpete County which has burned about 1,838 acres.
To see the locations and perimeters of some of the fires throughout Utah, visit Mapbox.
Mapbox gathers data from the Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination and from the agencies and first responders on the ground. There are many variables that can influence a fire's behavior and it can be difficult to accurately map a perimeter, especially during an active fire situation. Not all of Utah's fires are shown on the map.
Maps of the Bear Trap Fire and Dollar Ridge Fire perimeters have been added to the photo gallery below. Accurate perimeter mapping has not yet been conducted for the Hill Top Fire and Coal Hollow Fire due to Tuesday's significant fire activity, according to fire officials.
Those wishing to check if property is within a fire's perimeter can input the address on Mapbox's website in the top right corner.
