Firefighters Make Strong Push in Dollar Ridge Fire Containment

Jul 8, 2018, 12:37 AM | Updated: 12:43 am

DUCHESNE, Utah – Firefighters made a strong improvement on containment of the Dollar Ridge Fire burning in Wasatch and Duchesne counties Saturday.

In the morning, containment was listed as five-percent. By Saturday evening, that number had jumped to 30-percent. The fire made its smallest increase in size yet, growing from 47,683 acres to 49,789 acres.

Firefighters focused again on the southwestern portion of the fire, near Pine Hollow and Aspen Grove, south of Soldier Creek.

Helicopters and water-scooper airplanes flew all day long dropping water.

A westerly wind helped move the flames back to the east, into areas that had already burned.

People living in certain areas of the evacuation zones were allowed to go back to their homes for critical needs. People in some northern and eastern portions of the evacuation zone will be allowed back to their homes beginning Sunday morning.  For more details, go to the Duchesne County Facebook page.
