CAMP WILLIAMS, Utah, Nov. 18, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews are fighting a brush fire at Camp Williams Monday.

“Eagle Mountain Fire Department and Unified Fire Authority are responding to a fire at Camp Williams,” said a tweet from Utah National Guard at noon. “Be advised, UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters may be flying low over Redwood Road and dipping from Jordan River.”

The fire has burned approximately seven acres, and does not appear to be spreading quickly with current weather conditions, the tweet said.
