The Delta County Sheriff's office says the fire is in the Redlands Mesa area just outside the town.

He says winds are helping the flames to grow. Sheriff Mckee also says they do not know how the fire started.

The sheriff said he was so busy coordinating the firefighting efforts that he didn't have time to say anymore.
