New fires in Utah, Colorado, require evacuation, 0% contained



Authorities ordered the evacuation of Colorado and Utah as new forest fires broke out in the states.

The Fire Range and Fire Canyon have already burned thousands of acres in less than a day in Utah, and the causes of both fires are still being investigated.

Utah authorities believe the Canyon of Fire fire was caused by man.

A fire in a remote area burned about 1,500 acres and currently contains 0%, but authorities have warned that homeowners may return to their homes sometime on Sunday.

“It’s still too dynamic to go in and even start assessing where these homes could have been damaged or lost,” said Mike Wagner, a member of the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office.

No deaths or injuries were reported, and the cause of the CalWood fire has not yet been determined, authorities said.

New forest fires continued to spread to parts of the western United States, spreading rapidly and consuming thousands of acres per day.

In Arizona, “Horsefire” has consumed nearly 8,500 acres since early Thursday, according to the Daily Courier.

Over the weekend, Crown King residents near the Prescott National Forest were evacuated from the area when a fire broke out nearby. Authorities fear the fire will damage necessary communications structures, further complicating the fight and holding back the flames.
