SPRINGVILLE — Two wildfires continued to grow Tuesday as a large portion of Utah was under a red flag warning.
Gusting winds, as well as hot and dry conditions, means high fire danger and potential for rapid fire spreading, according to Utah fire officials.
Crews were expected to use a helicopter and aircraft Tuesday to help fight a wildfire burning close to homes east of Springville, officials said.
The Round Peak Fire was reported just after 10 p.m. Monday and was burning in brush and grass, according to Utah fire officials. They believe it may be human caused and due to a campfire that got out of control.
The flames are burning above and about a half a mile away from some nearby homes.
Fire personnel ordered three 20-person crews, three engines, one helicopter and two single engine aircraft to help fight the fire.
This story will be updated throughout the day with the latest wildfire information from across Utah.
