Fire Threatens Brian Head

Brian Head Fire 2009

Brian Head Fire 2009

Fire fighters from Brian Head and Parowan are currently on site doing their best to contain the fire. However, high winds pose a threat. A helicopter is currently dropping water and everyone hopes the fire does not grow.

It is unknown at this time how the fire started. The fire is located South East of Steam Engine Subdivision.

I was pulling up to my office when I saw the police truck race up Bear Flat road with sirens blaring. I quickly followed to see what all the excitement was about. As I drop up the mountain I could see the fire truck in my rear view mirror.  By the time I arrived there were only three other trucks just arriving. We all grabbed shovels and began to put out what had already grown to approximately one acre.

The winds are blowing North East, so it doesn’t appear that this fire will pose a threat to cabins in the surrounding areas.
