SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) A swift Utah wildfire fanned by high winds has more than doubled its size as it burns through dry terrain and forces evacuations of hundreds of homes, the U.S. Forest Service said Friday.
The blaze south of Spanish Fork grew to 84 square miles from 31 square miles Thursday night when authorities ordered evacuations in three communities. Spanish Fork is about 50 minutes south of Salt Lake City.
No homes have been reported damaged.
