COALVILLE, Utah (AP) -- A small earthquake has struck in Summit County but no damage has been reported.

The epicenter was eight miles west-southwest of Coalville and 20 miles north-northeast of Salt Lake City.

Residents in Park City, Bountiful, Coalville and Salt Lake City reported on a U.S. Geological Survey website that they felt the quake.
