UXO Hampers Firefighting Operation

Salt Lake City, Utah The Pinyon Fire burning on Camp Williams has burned over 5 acres of land including part of a mock Afghan village used for training. Crews battling the blaze have been hampered by the possibility of UXO in the area. Helicopters are being used to battle the fire from a distance as ground crews stay outside the exclusion zone monitoring the fire. At one point nearly 100 homes were evacuated but the evacuation has since been lifted.
