Bountiful Police Lt. Dave Edwards announced a boundary change for evacuations in Bountiful. Evacuations remain in place for those living east of 900 East to the edge of the city and north of 900 North to the edge of the city.

Davis School District sent a letter to families stating that “the fire has not affected our schools, so schools will be open today.”

The area between 400 North and 1600 North and the area east of 900 East is closed, so school buses will not be traveling on those streets.

“Students in that area who normally rely on a school bust to go to school will not be picked up,” according to the statement.

“If you, as a parent, feel conditions are unsafe for your child to attend school, please keep them home. As always, teachers will work with your child regarding any work they may miss due to their absence.”

The initial evacuation area included homes located north of 400 North and east of 800 East.
