Birdseye and surrounding areas being evacuated due to Wood Hollow fire encroaching into Utah County.

At this time, Utah County Sheriff's Office deputies are evacuating Birdseye and its surrounding areas as the Wood Hollow fire has now encroached into Utah County.

Access into that area is being restricted and traffic has been stopped at the Thistle Junction on SR-89 in Spanish Fork Canyon. It is not known how much area has burned within Utah County but a plane is flying over the affected area assessing the situation.

At this time, information is limited due to the lack of communications ability as a result of the incident's remote location. As more specific information becomes available, updates will be provided.
