SCHOFIELD, Utah — Evacuations were put in place Thursday for a Scofield community due to the Bennion Creek fire.

The Aspen Cove area was put under mandatory evacuation at 5 p.m. due to "extreme fire behavior and winds pushing the fire towards the community."

"All residence are asked to leave immediately and the public is asked to remain clear of the area for public and firefighter safety," the evacuation order said.
