County Sheriff’s Report

A crew battled a wildfire Wednesday afternoon that scorched roughly an acre of land in Echo. Nobody was injured in the blaze.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Summit County Fire Warden Bryce Boyer said.

"The likelihood is that it was fireworks that started it," Boyer said. "We found used fireworks and then the pattern of the burn led me to believe that it was most likely started from those."

No structures were damaged in the fire, which burned near the Echo Frontage Road.

"We were there from about 12:30 p.m. to almost 5 o’clock," Boyer said.

Firefighters from the North Summit Fire District helped crews contain the blaze within about an hour.
