Fillmore, Utah — A tire-shredding plant has also caught fire in addition to two wildfires that have forced evacuations in Millard County Friday afternoon.
According to the Millard County Chronicle Progress, a fire broke out at the plant located in Fillmore.
The Millard County Sheriff’s Office later asked the public to stay away from the Fillmore Industrial Park.
The sheriff also warned the public to avoid the areas of Sand Rock Ridge and Pine Creek due to the Halfway Hill Fire, as well as the Oak Creek Canyon and Dry Creek areas near Oak City due to the Dry Creek Fire.
“We appreciate your willingness to avoid unnecessary travel around these events to allow heavy fire resources to move about,” the announcement read.
According to Utah Wildfire Info, the tire plant fire was not connected to either of the wildfires.
