Search and rescue crews have been going door-to-door in a Utah town, urging residents to leave as a wildfire blackens the landscape.

The blaze has already destroyed three homes and forced 350 evacuations.

Another 200 homeowners have been told they’ll likely be given an hour’s notice if the fire continues to threaten the area.

The lightning-sparked Mill Flat Fire had been burning in the Pine Valley Wilderness Area for more than a month before it flared up over the weekend near New Harmony.
