Existing firelines continue to hold on the #SandhurstFire. Just because active flames or smoke isn't visible doesn't mean there isn't still fire or heat. Help firefighters by staying away, avoid roads, and stay off trails near the fire area to avoid impacting suppression efforts.

A morning flight provided official acreage for the #SandhurstFire at 204 acres. This is more accurate mapping, thanks to aerial GPS support, vs previous estimates.

Despite rumors, the cause is still under investigation. No cause has been determined or released by authorities.

#SandhurstFire is mapped approx. 400 acres and 0% contained. Mandatory evacuations remain in place (see @slcpd). Crews worked perimeter overnight and saw little growth. Northern Utah Type 3 Incident Management Team took command of the fire. No structure damage currently reported.

#Sandhurst 🔥is est. 200 acres & burning active Firefighters will work through the night w/ structure protection in place. Northern Utah type 3 team is transitioning with the initial attack resources. Est. 20 homes are evacuated. Air resources will return in the morning.

We are releasing several photos, in addition to video already released, from the Sandhurst Fire taken from within the fire closure area.
