EAGLE MOUNTAIN — What’s worse than apocalyptic levels of tumbleweeds? Cleaning up apocalyptic levels of tumbleweeds.

After Eagle Mountain was buried by thousands of tumbleweeds in a big wind storm, the Unified Fire Authority began to burn the remnants on Monday.

Capt. Tony Barker with the Unified Fire Authority said they only burned approximately 25% of the tumbleweeds and had to stop because the weather impeded their efforts.

Otherwise, Barker said the burning was expected to last all day because of the sheer amount of tumbleweeds to take care of.
