All evacuation zones will be lifted as of 11 a.m. but mountain areas will remain closed to recreators, fire officials said. The area from the Bountiful “B” to the Viewmont “V” will remain closed and no recreational activity is permitted in that area this weekend. The Bountiful “B” parking lot and Tolman Park, where the fire camp is, will remain closed.

In an early morning press conference, officials said the fire was still at 365 acres burned and 10 percent containment. 20 structure engines from Davis, Salt Lake, and Weber counties all responded to the fire-fighting efforts. Three homes were lost, South Davis Metro Fire Chief Jeff Bassett, said.

Officials say there is no need to call 911 to report fires on the mountain, only call if you see something in city limits. Water and power has been restored back on Northridge Drive. Power lines over the mountain are down but they are not causing any outages and they have been deenergized.

U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Kim Osborn said a team will be assessing the damage on the mountain. She said mudslides and debris flow are less likely because the fire didn’t burn hot enough, but the team will give further direction.

Osborn estimated around $300,000 in damage.

Lt. Troy Killian with the Bountiful Police Department said only residents will be allowed back in the area and if you do not live there, stay away.

Officials are still looking for two people in connection with the fire but did not provide any updates on them.

6:50 a.m

Lt. Troy Killian, with the Bountiful Police Department, said the evacuations are still in place. Police have been turning away a few residents who have tried to get back in the area and others who don’t belong there.
