Actually homes in Meadow Ranch and North Ranch were threatened. Also 27S Provo Helitac controled the fire from reaching homes. Crew had to make a hasty retreat from protecting the Eagle Mountain City Water Tank, as fire chased them from the fire line. Crews had to drop their hose and run for their trucks some 1200 feet down the side of the mountain. This is eye witness report from the inital attack crews.

Some crews used their fire shelters inside the trucks to avoid the heat as the fire had flanked them and was on both sides of the road. What I would call a near miss. Be care brothers and sisters ,make sure LCES is in place.
Thank you 27S for cooling that south flank with your pinpoint drops. Great work Provo Helitac.
BTW If a Chief had not canceled Provo Helitac 2 hours prior,these crews would not have been compromised.
