OGDEN, Utah, Sept. 7, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — Evacuations were lifted Wednesday on the Valley Fire, originally named the Rainbow Fire, which was first reported Tuesday.
“The fire is 40% contained and still at nine acres,” says a statement released at 2:13 p.m. Wednesday by the Ogden Fire Department.
“Thank you to all the donations and concern from the community and local business.”
“Fire crews are aggressively attacking a fire between valley drive and 20th street in Ogden Utah,” the initial tweet says. “Around 25 homes evacuated, no structures on fire. Please avoid the area, around 5-7 acres currently burning.”
Crews remained on scene to monitor the blaze through the night, a subsequent tweet says.
An evacuation point was established for those in need.
As of Wednesday afternoon, no fire cause had been confirmed.
