According to officials, the Traverse fire is burning in the Traverse mountain near Lehi City. FOX News reported that the city ordered evacuations around 12:30 am for residents in the affected areas.

Those within a quarter-mile from Vialetto Way, Annuvolato Way, Spring View Lane, and the Autumn Hills area were ordered to evacuate to Skyridge High School and was told to wait for evacuation vehicles to arrive.
