    A wildfire is burning in Summit County, off I-80 near Heiner Canyon.

    The sheriff’s office does not know what caused the fire but at 4:30 p.m. Thursday it was reported to be 1,000 acres with 100-foot flames. North and South Summit fire crews, as well as U.S. Forest Services and Evanston, Wyo., fire crews are battling the blaze.
