Iron County wildfire destroys vacation home, threatened 30 others
PARAGONAH, Utah (AP) — Authorities say a wildfire in southwestern Utah destroyed a vacation home and six outbuildings and threatened an additional 30 homes before being contained.
The state Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands said the fire in Paragonah in Iron County burned 15 acres (6 hectares) before being contained Monday and was started by equipment that caught fire while being operated in dry grass.
The fire started about 4:20 P.M. near 100 South St., according to the Division’s fire management officer Mike Melton.
Melton said the fire required 11 fire engines, two single-engine air tankers and one dozer.
No injuries were reported.
