KANE COUNTY, Utah — Fire officials managing the Left Fork Fire in Kane County announced Friday that all residents of the Bryce Woodlands Estate will be allowed to return home on Saturday.

Fire officials evacuated residents on Tuesday, June 21, when increased wind and fire behavior caused the fire to jump the fire line in the southwest corner.

Fire officials say, however, residents of Bryce Woodlands Estate must remain ready to evacuate in the event that the fire situation changes. 

According to fire officials, the blaze is still active on the west side. And with the right weather conditions, the fire could move toward the subdivision, which would require another evacuation.

Utah Fire Info reports that the size of the fire has grown to 4,241 acres. And its still only 5% contained. Utah Fire Info also says a quarter inch of rain fell on the fire Thursday night.
