Another fire on the mountain, just southeast of Manti this time. Been going since yesterday sometime. With record temperatures and gusty south winds for the last couple of days, we've had temps typical of mid-summer. I've been looking for something like this with all of the bowhunters on the mountain, high temperatures and low humidity.
The wind and temperature should change pretty drastically this evening, a strong cold front is supposed to come through dropping the temperatures by as much as forty degrees. The fire shouldn't last very long with that.
