Tank Hollow Fire expected to grow

Unseasonably hot weather expected to bring changes to fire behavior

UTAH COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - Utah's unseasonably hot and dry weather is expected to bring changes in fire behavior at the Tank Hollow Fire and not in a good way. 
 
The fire is expected to increase significantly and is likely to reach the top of the forest over the next several days. The fire, sparked August 11 by lightning, is burning about 19 miles east of Spanish Fork. 
 

 
More than 5,000 acres have burned and the fire is about 40 percent contained as Monday, September 4. 
 
Smoke from the Tank Hollow Fire has been rising and moving out laterally, but large volumes of smoke from numerous larger fires in the Pacific Northwest and Montana is causing hazy conditions along the Wasatch Front.
