LAYTON, Utah – Layton Fire officials have confirmed that no homes are currently threatened by the Snoqualmie Fire.

The fire has burned an estimated 80 acres and was first reported around 10 p.m. Monday night.

Officials also reported multiple drone sightings in the area.

Authorities said it’s illegal to fly drones over a fire, and doing so could impede firefighting efforts if air support is being used.

Mandatory evacuations are in effect for parts of the city east of U.S. Highway 89. Around 125 homes have been evacuated but Layton Fire official emphasized that no homes are currently threatened.

KSL TV will continue coverage of the Snoqualmie Fire throughout the day. You can watch our live updates on the KSL TV app. Get it at KSLTV.com/app.
