The Utah Department of Wildlife Resources working with the county fire warden and the BLM started a fire in near the top of Mudwater Canyon on Tuesday afternoon to rid the area of densely packed sagebrush that was inhibiting wildlife growth. According to Chris Colt of the department, the burn will now provide better habitat for big game as well as for rabbits and rodents. In addition when their numbers grow it helps the raptor population as well because it helps the prey base. Around 20 acres were burned in the action and it will be reseeded to provide ground cover.
