About 45 firefighters were on standby Wednesday, closely monitoring a lightning-caused blaze on a remote patch of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Spanish Fork Canyon.
Fire Information Officer Kathy Jo Pollock said the Third Water Fire, spotted about 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, had not grown beyond its initial 32 acres.
"We're just monitoring it right now. It's high on a ridge, creeping along underneath grass and brush. Unless we get some kind of significant winds, we don't expect it to move much more," she said.
