SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Summit County announced that interagency wildfire fuel treatments would occur on October 11 at 10 a.m. near Lambs Canyon, Exit 137, off I-80 East.
The agencies involved include the U.S. Forest Service, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities, Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands, and Summit County Public Lands. The goal is to improve the health of the Parley’s Creek Watershed and enhance the wildlife habitat.
The Lambs Canyon area was the location of a wildfire in 2021 and 2022. Removing fuels or excess vegetation that can help a wildfire spread can reduce the risk of wildfire occurring or spreading.
