SOUTHERN UTAH —  Northbound I-15  in Beaver County has reopened after a closure due to a wildfire Thursday.

Fire officials estimated the size of the “Mile Marker 122 Fire” at 350 acres Thursday afternoon with no containment.

The fire is believed to be human-caused.

Southbound I-15 was shut down at exit 129 and northbound I-15 was closed at exit 95.

The Highway Patrol states southbound drivers should not go beyond Filmore, but should instead take US 6 to Delta, then SR 257 to Milford and finally SR 130 to Cedar City.

A UDOT camera in the area shows the blaze.
