HEBER CITY, Utah — Mandatory evacuations that were issued Monday for a wildfire in Heber City have been lifted.

WATCH: Fire started at Utah County recycling plant

The "Little Pole Fire" started near Little Pole Canyon just after 3 p.m. and authorities believe it was human-caused — a controlled burn that got out of control.

The Wasatch County Fire District said 8-10 structures were threatened by the fire.

Mandatory evacuations were issued for homes on 1200 South between 4800-5700 East. By 6:30 p.m., the evacuation order was lifted.
