All those fires never hit power transmission lines...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18569383

Which to be honest is VERY spectacular. Many lines run over this range, especially by Seely and Wood Hollow fires. The Seely fire is actually in the same canyon as one of our power plants, Huntington Power Plant. The power mainly gets directed to California I believe.

I'm not familiar with Utah, but my son and his new wife are headed to Heber.

Are they in any danger?
 Quoting: Me too

As of now they should be perfectly fine. The closest fire, until now, was the Church Camp fire in north eastern Utah. As I type this reply to you I discovered that two more have started. One is on the eastern Utah/Colorado border so that does not change anything. One also has started to the west of Heber, the Rosecrest fire. However it is directly west, over a mountain, and across Urban developed land. As of now I feel Heber is a very safe place to be, not to mention it is located in a beautifulvalley. :)
