Wood Hollow Fire update:

FAIRVIEW, Sanpete County Fairview residents were allowed to return to their homes at noon Wednesday, ending a 20-hour evacuation of the entire town because of the massive Wood Hollow Fire.

Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, fire crews with bulldozers cut a fire break around the southeast portion of the fire.

"The dozer lines they were going to dig in around the fire line has been accomplished and they feel very confident the fire will remain under control. They also feel confident if the winds do pick up in the afternoon, that the fire line they cut in will be substantial to retain the fire," Fairview Mayor Jonathan Benson announced Wednesday.

Also Wednesday, U.S. Highway 6 was reopened from Mt. Pleasant to the town of Hilltop. Officials said they would reevaluate whether to reopen the remaining portion of the road at 2 p.m.

Further north, the evacuation order remained in effect Wednesday for the fire-ravaged communities west of U.S. Highway 89, including Indianola and the Oaker Hills subdivision.
