Park City police blotter
The Park City Police Department last week received a report from someone who initially said a campfire might be burning but then said that might not be the case.
The report was logged on Wednesday, July 27 at 11:28 p.m. somewhere along Deer Valley Drive. The person told the police a campfire might have been lit close to a pond. The person who contacted the police, though, then said it might be a light reflecting off the water. The police indicated the circumstances were suspicious.
City Hall recently enacted a ban on fireworks and open flames. The ban was based on hazardous wildfire conditions in the area.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
