(KSL News) Fire crews will be back in Centerville this morning to battle a blaze that has already burned more than 200 acres and is expected to grow.

What had become a smoldering fire started to flare up last night. A huge plume of smoke could be seen for miles away.

Airtankers came out in full force on the western side to keep the flames from creeping down the mountain side and threatening homes.

All dirt roads in the foothill areas are closed to all motorized vehicles--apparently it's popular with SUV's.

The shooting range is also closed.

The fire was started by three teens playing with smoke bombs.
