SALT LAKE CITY — Nearly 80 Utah firefighters on Sunday continued to battle several blazes ravaging California that forced hundreds of thousands to evacuate.
Seventy-eight firefighters from 16 agencies in northern Utah — from Layton to Provo — left before dawn Thursday and got to work Friday. After one day of rest on Saturday, crews picked up again Sunday.
A crew from Unified Fire Authority was helping contain a 4,100 acre fire called the Lilac Fire in San Diego County on Sunday, said Unified firefighter Matthew McFarland.
