(KSL News) -- A review of what caused the Cascade Springs prescribed burn to get out of control is underway.

A team of Forest Service experts will examine if forest officials followed procedures when they started the controlled burn.

The fire was only supposed to burn 600 acres, but high winds helped the fire to escape the fire lines and it eventually burned eight thousand acres.

A public hearing will be held tomorrow night at the Provo Marriott at 7 pm. A similar town meeting is planned for the Heber City Senior Center on Wednesday night, also at 7 pm.
