(KSL News) -- Forest Service officials tonight released a report on the cause of September's out of control prescribed burn in Wasatch County.
Federal investigators blame the Cascade Springs fire on a decision to burn an additional 400 acres. The report also suggests an inadequate burn plan and pre-burn weather monitoring and analysis allowed the fire to burn out of control.
Jack Troyer, the regional forester for Utah says he will take appropriate actions to insure future prescribed burns follow proper procedures.
