PRICE, Utah (AP) -- A U.S. Forest Service road and a hiking trail in Utah County have been closed because of a fire that has burned about 600 acres.
The Lake Fork fire started July 2 and is burning in the Manti-LaSal National Forest.
Forest officials on Tuesday said they were closing the Ives Canyon Trail and Ives Canyon Road because of the fire.
The fire, about eight miles north of Indianola, is mostly burning in pinyon and juniper.
The Forest Service is allowing it to burn to benefit the natural environment. Forest officials say they'll move to suppress the fire if it begins to threaten lives or property.
