Fires burning in Utah County

MAPLETON — Canyon roads are blocked and campgrounds have been evacuated due to four brush fires in Mapleton and Hobble Creek canyons.

Around 4:30 p.m., calls began coming in about brush fires in the Mapleton Canyon area. However, what started as two fires has grown to three fires, and now there's an additional large fire in Hobble Creek Canyon in Springville, according to initial dispatch reports.

Whiting Campground has been evacuated, and access to the canyons is blocked during firefighting efforts.
