(KSL News) -- Dozens of firefighters are struggling to contain a massive fire in central Utah. Authorities believe the blaze was man-made.
The fire, known as the Pelican Point Fire, has already consumed 17-hundred acres. It's burning just south of Saratoga Springs in Utah County.
Outdoor enthusiasts have been evacuated from the area and officials have shut down Highway 86.
Flames are threatening power lines and some towers, but no other structures are in danger.
Crews hope to have the fire contained by tomorrow night.
Also in Utah County, the Government Creek Fire has gobbled up over 15-hundred acres outside of Elberta. Authorities say that blaze was sparked by lightning.
