UPDATE: 6/28/12: Fire now have burned 85000+ acres combined. Three of the six started just last night. I pray that none of these are as big as the Colorado Springs area fire... if one or more than one is.... Utah will not be the same at all for a long while.

UPDATE: 6/29/12: Two more fires have started, making the total wildfire count in Utah 8. Total acres burned: 169,000+
