A huge fire broke out in Utah

In the US state of Utah, a strong fire engulfed forests and spread over an area of ​​almost 3,000 hectares.

This was announced on the air of the local KUTV TV channel on Sunday.

The first sparks of flames in the area were reported as early as July 8, when much of western Utah was threatened by strong winds and anomalously warm weather.

The efforts of the authorities to stop the spread of the fire are hindered by the wind and low humidity, the TV channel reports.

"At this time, our efforts are focused on ensuring the safety of nearby residences," a state fire marshal's spokesman said.
