Lake Shore hay burst into smoke


UPDATE: 03/27/22 10:24

LAKE SHORE, Utah (ABC4) – The Utah County Fire Marshal reports that firefighters are back at the scene in Lake Shore.

Firefighters reportedly worked for around 12 hours to put out the hay fire on Saturday, and although they were successful they believe the fire reignited due to smoldering.

Randy Crowther of the Utah County Fire Department says the fire started when the property owner was burning weeds and the wind blew embers into the hay.

The incident occurred in a storage shed located at 7134 S 3200 W.

Crowther says, “Don’t burn your weeds. We have fire conditions in June and July right now in March. »

He cites the dry conditions as very dangerous for possible fires.

Information released shows that at least one outbuilding has been lost, while firefighters are protecting others and farm equipment from further damage.

Units from Spanish Fork, Payson, Salem and Mapleton are said to be at work.
