Dollar Ridge Fire 85% Contained

Utah Division Of Forestry Fire State Lands

After blazing for more than two weeks, the Dollar Ridge fire near Duchesne is reported to be at 85% containment.

Utah fire authorities report the fire, which was human caused and started July 1st, has burned over 56,700 acres.

Rain over the past few days caused the fire to greatly decrease and there has been very minimal fire growth.

The state reports that day crews will continue to provide protection for structures, secure fire lines and attack the south side of the fire.

Drying conditions in the next few days will continue to increase possible fire activity in the minimal to moderate range.

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covered Summit County meetings and issues for 35 years on KPCW. He now heads the Friday Film Review team.
