07/29 @6PM- Unified Fire and @slcfire crews are currently fighting a 2 acre grass fire at 10462 W I-80WB. WB traffic will be closed to a single lane until further notice.
Cause: Motor vehicle accident. No injuries reported.
Fire is contained at this time. Crews are mopping up interior hotspots.
Thank you to @slcfire & @utahhighwaypatrol for your assistance. ...
UFA medics from Little Cottonwood Canyon station 113, Medic ambulance 110, and Battalion Chief 11 worked closely with @slcosar and @unifiedpolicedepartment to help a climber out of a hard to navigate Boulder field last night. The patient was stable but unable to walk after injuries incurred in a fall.
UFA medics, who made initial patient contact, worked on patient care and packaging, while the SAR team assembled for the labor intensive job of getting him out and to the ambulance.
This interagency cooperation has proven to hasten rescues, improve patient care, and strengthened the mutual respect between first responders. ...

Can you spot the hazards?
3 Alarm Fire in Millcreek, Ut.
Yesterday around 5pm, our Millcreek crews were dispatched to a large structure fire near 1300 E. Miller Ave.
3 alarms were immediately struck due to the size and complexity of the fire.
Overall, we utilized nearly 60+ firefighters and 20+ apparatus from 6 surrounding agencies.
1 patient was transported to a nearby hospital in alpha condition.
Cause: unknown. Investigators are standing by to determine cause once the scene is stable.
The fire is currently under control, however, fire operations and road closures will continue throughout the day and possibly tomorrow as well.
What burned: 1 large apartment complex under construction + equipment, 14 small businesses in nearby strip mall. Total damage and dollar amount tbd.
We’d like to extend a thank you to all agencies who assisted including:
South Salt Lake Fire

West Jordan Fire
West Valley Fire

We go on a lot of unique and interesting calls, the chance to help people in a variety of situations is one of the privilege’s of the job.
This one was a first for the Station 112 B platoon crew this week, when a big rig full of bees broke down in Parleys Canyon. These precious pollinators were starting to overheat in the sun, and the engine crew helped keep them cool until they could get back on the road.

This year, above-normal wildfire potential is predicted due to expected high temperatures, dry vegetation, and other weather factors including high winds. Because of these conditions, human-caused wildfire ignitions have the potential to quickly grow out of control and threaten lives, property, and precious natural resources. People accidentally start wildfires during numerous activities, so the public is asked to help reduce ignitions from causes such as campfires, debris burning, equipment use, target shooting, or even from an automobile’s hot tailpipe scorching dry grass.
Many states issue wildfire prevention orders every year to reduce human-caused wildfires, and some areas implement fire restrictions during periods of high wildfire risk.
Visit www.blm.gov to find more information about possible fire prevention orders and fire restrictions in your area. Always know the fire conditions in the area you plan to visit. A simple campfire - if not extinguished properly - can cause catastrophe. As Ol' Smokey the Bear always says, "Only YOU Can Prevent Wildfires."
