Recent drought conditions and high winds reminded Utopians once again of the power of "Mother Nature" as a fire swept through the canyon. The hard work of volunteer firefighters from all over the region paid off as the damage was kept from harming both homes and humans. This overall aerial shows the path as the winds pushed the fire across the area. As the winds changed direction later that evening the fires threatened again but a great job by volunteer firefighters working through the night saved homes and structures in the area. My hat goes off to these hard working volunteers who gave it there all on our "front lines". They literally saved the day. If you would like to see more pictures from the fire click here.
