What also concerns me is that Ft. Herriman school is actually closer to the fire so how is this a safe place for evacuees?

They do a reverse 911 call telling you to evacuate.

what happens if you do not have a land line phone? How will people be notified. I am concerned because my son & his family live there.

Why are they shooting guns when there is a red flag warning. They should be liable.

We live in Draper and it is so amazing how fast this fire is spreading. We could see the light from the fire for about 15 minutes then the flames came over the top and it just looks like lava pooring down our beautiful mountians. I pray that all the people and animals are safe!

Looking through our field glasses we can see the flames from our home in Draper. Very scary. It makes you wonder why they were shooting in the windy conditions that were occuring all day today. Many fires in that area are caused from guns sparks.

First of all they have the National Guard taking care of this. The people that need to be evacuated from there homes have been notifed, if not in person but by seeing the fire.

Just because there is a red flag warning does not mean that they are going to hold off on training that supports our military and our freedom.

These things happen all the time and will be taken care of.

Worry about the support you can give to the national guard at this time insted of who is going to pay for it! It was on Military Ground! HELLO!

Fox appears to be way behind on updating their info. The evacuations have been expanded. See KSL and KUTV.

At this posting they are evacuating four houses from my daughter and family. I also have a Grandaughter and four small children living not far from them. I lived in Herriman for about ten years....the fire is quite close as I figure it. I understand houses are already on fire.

Good old Camp Williams has done it again. They have not learned over the years of starting fires from the Tracer rounds that they need to be careful where and when they fire these weapons. All they need to do is make sure the area is cleared of dry brush. In a Machine gun belt of bullets every 7th round, if I remember correctly, is what you call a tracer round. I was in the Guard several years ago working at one of the Ammo Bunkers when they were showing a group of teenagers how M-60 Machine Guns worked. They started a fire from a tracer round, then stood there along with a fire truck and watched the fire grow. Myself and another individual working with me grabbed a couple of shovels and quickly put it out before it got any bigger. The fire truck folks were upset at us for this. They said we endangered our selves by doing this. I think if any folks lose their homes they need to be fully reimbursed from the State. Those folks know the fire dangers of firing live ammo from Maching guns when there is dry brush around. How stupid can you be.

Ste Joe, if you are among those that understand the need for this kind of training there is no need for the comment " How stupid can you be" I dont see you out there fighting for our country or putting out the fire yourself! So shut the hell up!

What if the resident has an out of state area code? will they still be able to be notified?

Living in Taylorsville, I'm a considerable distance from the fire. Yet at the same time it's snowing ash on my back porch!:(
