Dollar Ridge Fire Nearly Out

Jul 23, 2018

The Dollar Ridge fire has been burning the entire month of July. The fire started near Strawberry Reservoir in Wasatch County and moved into Duchesne county causing evacuations in both counties.

Now the wildfire is nearly wrapped up. The fire is 93% contained and just over 300 personnel are working towards an estimated July 25th containment day.

Wasatch County has decreased their lone remaining evacuation zone to a pre-evacuation level. Duchesne County is also removing pre-evacuation status from several areas.

Strawberry River Road west of Camelot resort is remaining closed indefinitely due to damage from flash flooding, meaning there is no access to Timber Canyon until further notice. Lower Red Creek Road is open, but officials warn that those who drive on the road should be aware of the potential for flash floods.

The Dollar Ridge Fire has burned over 57,000 acres and was human caused. Officials are still investigating how the flames began.
