Fire on Reservation Ridge started by lightning

The fire, which apparently was started by lightening last week, is in an area that was scheduled for a prescribed burn somewhere in the future, so the U.S. Forest Service is letting it burn but monitoriing it closely.

Smoke from a fire on Reservation Ridge was visible from Highway 6 between Scofield Junction and Soldier Summit on Saturday afternoon.

The fire, which apparently was started by lightening last week, is in an area that was scheduled for a prescribed burn somewhere in the future, so the U.S. Forest Service is letting it burn but monitoriing it closely.
