Fire crews have been fighting the fire since around 11:00 last night. Today, air support is expected to start fighting the fire around 9:30 am. There are 3 important things you can do to help:
1. Sign up for citizen alerts at https://www.springville.org/citizen-alert/
2. Stay out of Bartholomew Park today. Fire crews are using the park and it is closed to the public.
3. Don’t get in the way of fire crews, and don’t fly drones in the area.

Little follow up from the briefing we just attended:

Utah County Fire, DNR, BLM, SVFD and the Forrest Service are all working together to work on the Round Peak fire.

The incident command will be at the Summit Center in Springville (thanks Nebo SD).

The air attack is on the way! They will be dipping into Bartholomew Pond so please stay out of the area.

Everyone in Springville has been sooooo supportive and it’s appreciated. Some of you have asked about donations. Logistically, taking donations creates more work for the fire folks so please no donations. If you would like to do something, make them a sign showing your support, they love that.

We will update FB as soon as we can. Follow Utah Fire Info on twitter for up to date information. Just look for #roundpeakfire

Air support has arrived! They’re filling up at Bartholomew Park and dumping water on the fire now. Thank you for avoiding those areas while they work. Bartholomew Park will be closed until further notice. Please don’t fly drones near the fire or Bartholomew Park.
