Salt Lake Brush Fire
Fireworks spark field fire in Butterfield Canyon
August 11th, 2009 @ 11:14am
SALT LAKE COUNTY -- Someone with illegal fireworks is to blame for a field fire that burned five acres in Butterfield Canyon Monday night.
The fire started around 10:15 p.m. on a hillside about one-fourth mile from the mouth of the canyon. Crews extinguished the fire quickly.
Investigators with Unified Fire Authority believe a Roman candle hit dry grass and sparked the fire. They don't know who set off the firework.
Igniting any type of firework is illegal in Utah outside of the Fourth of July and 24th of July holidaysFront line since 1983 and still going strong
