HURRICANE, Utah — Fire crews were battling a brush fire in Hurricane Sunday morning that scorched at least 13 acres.
Washington County Emergency Services told KSL TV the fire is out and is under investigation for how it started.
Crews were forced to close both directions of state Route 59 overnight but it has reopened. Emergency services cautioned drivers as crews worked the fire in blowing winds.
A video that Bridget Hutchings posted on Facebook showed how windy conditions were during the firefight.
Firefighters said smoke will be visible throughout Sunday as winds continue.
No structures or power lines were affected according to Hurricane Valley Fire & Rescue.
