PLEASANT GROVE, Utah — A wildfire that broke out Saturday night forced homes to be evacuated in Pleasant Grove.
The “Battle Creek 2 Fire” is still burning on “G Mountain” between Grove Creek and Battle Creek canyons — near the same area as another wildfire less than a month ago.
As of about 7 a.m., the blaze has burned an estimated 50 to 70 acres.
At least one helicopter has been called in to help fight the fire from the air.
Some homes between 200 South and Grove Creek Drive and east of 1350 East were evacuated Saturday night. Evacuees can find shelter or other assistance at the Pleasant Grove Recreation Center, located at 547 S. Locust Avenue.
The Battle Creek Canyon trail was also evacuated, and authorities asked people to stay away from Grove Creek Canyon.
The fire’s cause is under investigation.
