SALT LAKE CITY — The Ether Hollow Fire east of Springville grew quickly Monday afternoon and evening to over 1,000 acres and caused evacuations. All of Hobble Creek Canyon and parts of Springville and Mapleton were evacuated. Two evacuation centers were set up for those displaced by the fire.

The fire sparked pleas from fire officials to stop reckless behavior. “Two major fires in two days caused by target shooting,” Utah fire officials said on Twitter. “This is not the time to carelessly shoot into the wildlands folks. This has to stop.”

Another Utah County blaze, the William Fire, grew from 1,200 acres on Monday morning to over 2,000 acres by the evening, Utah Fire Authorities said.
