Grass fires cause evacuations east of Kanab
Residents were forced from their homes when a vehicle driving on a flat tire ignited dry grassland a few miles east of Kanab on Friday, July 5. Firefighters put out three fires, the largest one about 30 acres before it was extinguished. No injuries or damage were reported. The Kanab City Fire Department, as well as BLM, Forest Service and Utah State Forestry fire crews quickly were on scene to put the fire out. Photos by Hilda Crutchfield.
