Alpine, Utah fire

I live in Utah and out of my window I can see a literal wall of smoke. If anybody who lives around there reads this, how bad is it, and should I be worried?

Anyway, the fire in Utah really sucks.

Re: Alpine, Utah fire

Living in Southern California, I've had my share of fire experiences.

I don't think you need to worry much, yet. If the police come and suggest an evacuation, you're still probably okay. However, if they say the evacuation is "mandatory" (as in, you HAVE to evacuate. Yet some people still refuse), that's when I'd begin to worry.

In the meantime, try to stay indoors to avoid breathing in all those toxins. If you have ash and charred leaves and stuff floating down where you live, the air quality is really poor.


Stay safe! If conditions do not look like they're improving (ie, spreading closer), it may be a good idea to have belongings prepared for evacuation. (Hopefully you have a disaster kit already! If not, you might want to consider starting one.)

Usually if the police start mandating evacuations though, you do have time to gather your belongings before heading out.

I hope this helps!

Re: Alpine, Utah fire

If I were you, I'd probably call the fire dept and explain what you see to them.

Chances are that they know exactly what's going on, but I'd want to be safe and know if I need to take action.

Re: Alpine, Utah fire

Don't be worried, you'll be fine. I live in Utah as well and it's heading farther away from civilization. Although I have a few friends that had to evacuate and I don't think any structures have been burned.


I'm not the most reliable source, but that's the last I heard.

That seems a little unnecessary. They will tell you if you need to leave. Furthermore, despite how "bad" the media is, in times like that, the news can let you know what other people in your area are doing, and what the fire marshal recommends.

It might be, but I say this based on my experience with fire departments, with which I've seen and have had nothing but problems (I'm speaking of the ❤❤❤❤ty volunteer fire depts where houses have burned to the ground across the road from their HQs).

Though I wouldn't think that's the case in Utah, where they need reputable and reliable teams ready to take out wildfires, since this sort of event isn't exactly unheard of in Utah and other western states.

So yeah, it might be a little unnecessary to call them, but it's something I'd do for peace of mind, especially since the only fire depts I've known are uncoordinated and unreliable in sudden emergencies.
