Summit County Rockport fire

Lightning started this fire near Rockport Reservoir today and has consumed 15oo acres as of this evening. 

As of 9pm MST 3 homes and 15 structures have been burned. Some areas of Promontory have been evacuated. I am in contact with a good friend, Nancy that lives in Promontory and she is still in her home and has not been evacuated. From what I could see on the news the fire retardant has been dropped on the ridge which should prevent the fire from crossing into Promontory.

Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley and Canyons are not in danger and the fire has not crossed the I-40 or the I-80
