MILLCREEK CANYON, Utah — Fire officials in Utah announced Sunday Millcreek Canyon was open once more, though Pipeline trails are still closed.

The closure was the result of the Church Fork Fire, which is 80 percent contained as of Sunday afternoon.

Authorities said the fire was sparked by a man during an encounter with police, click here for details. Firefighting efforts were hampered Saturday by someone flying a drone in the vicinity, which caused air resources to be grounded.
