(KSL News) Fire forced the evacuation of dozens of people out of Lambs Canyon Saturday evening.

By Saturday night, crews had allowed everyone to return. And they can rest easily knowing the fire never came near their campsites or cabins.

The blaze broke out shortly after 4:00 Saturday afternoon in an area known as Murdock Peak.

Crews quickly called in an air tanker, which dropped a load of water on the fire, knocking it down to about three quarters of an acre.

Officials evacuated 16 Girl Scouts and their leaders, along with a couple of cabin owners and their families, as a precaution.

Crews hope to have the fire under control sometime Sunday.
