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
