WASATCH COUNTY, Utah — Fire crews are responding to a fire on 10 acres near Strawberry Reservoir, and the blaze is threatening homes in the Soldier Creek Estates subdivision.

Janet Carson, Wasatch County Fire, says a forest ranger is going door-to-door in the subdivision to make sure everyone is out of the area. She said most of the structures are summer homes, so they aren’t sure how many, if any, are occupied at the moment.

The blaze is burning on about 10 acres near the borders of Duchesne and Wasatch counties and in the vicinity of Strawberry Reservoir.

Officials learned about the fire after a plane flew over the area and reported it. The cause is unknown at this time.
