Herriman Wildfire Now Contained

(KCPW News) The 611-acre Rosecrest fire that began Friday in Herriman is now contained. Residents in the roughly 950 homes that were evacuated Friday have returned to their homes. The evacuation order was lifted Saturday evening.

Public Information Officer Kim Osborn says fire crews will still be around for a few days.

“Things are going great,” she said Sunday. “We’re not having any issues, but we will still have crews continuing to mop up and be out here for the next few days.”

The fire was started by a vehicle stopped that was stopped in dry grass. Four homes and many other structures were destroyed.
