Birdseye, Utah (AP) - A wildfire in Utah County has burned more than 1,000 acres over the last month.
The fire has been burning since it was started by lightning July 2 in the Manti-La Sal National Forest.
The U.S. Forest Service is managing the fire while allowing it to burn in Pinyon and Juniper, reducing hazardous fuel sources in order to prevent more serious fires in the future.
The Ives Canyon Trail and Ives Canyon Road have been closed because of the fire, but no structures have been threatened.
