Wind fans the flames of Utah fire that has burned 13 homes

Most of the fire growth from Monday to Tuesday occurred in the northern part of of the fire, the forestry agency said. Although about 175 people who live near Panguitch Lake were allowed to briefly return to their homes Sunday.

Steve Bloch, legal director of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, said Noel's assertion is an over-simplification of wildfires that are the result of fire suppression, climate change, drought and unpredictable winds. The Frye Fire is about 70 miles northeast of Tucson, the second-largest city in Arizona.

In Los Angeles, California, there are three states including California are terrified of increasing heat waves with temperature over 100 degrees, which also prompt a potential alarm of the continuing wildfires that till now perished over 100,000 acres under its fire rage. Investigators say it was sparked on June 17 near the Brian Head resort by someone using a torch tool to burn weeds.

A conservation group called that contention "shameful" and misleading, saying it fails to take into account climate change and drought. This Saturday, June 24, 2017, photo, shows a home near a burnt hillside caused by a wildfire fire on the west side of Panguitch Lake, near Panguitch, Utah.

Another California wildfire, sparked by a traffic accident on a remote stretch of highway 80 miles east of Los Angeles, has grown to almost two square miles in just a few hours.

Fire officials said midday Monday that more than 43,000 acres have already burned.




The fire broke out in the early afternoon after a traffic collision caused a tree to catch fire, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

A separate out-of-control wildfire forced more than 200 people to evacuate near San Luis Obispo, California on Monday.

Two people were hospitalized in the solo-vehicle crash and subsequent auto fire that caused the wildfire on Monday afternoon. Residents eyed the flames warily as authorities told them to make preparations to flee as the blaze made its way east toward Banning, where for several hours residents were on edge and told to prepare to evacuate as flames chewed threw dry grass sprung up from this year's winter.

The blaze was first reported at around 3 p.m. after a single-car crash near Lamb Canyon sparked a 30-acre fire that quickly began to spread at a "critical rate", officials said.

In Arizona, firefighters had to ground aircraft after they spotted drones being flown near the fire, Bureau of Land Management spokesman Dennis Godfrey said.
