And as Utah heats up, residents need to think about more than just ways to cool down — risks from wildfire, air pollution and wider use of lakes, reservoirs and rivers also increase. Hot and dry conditions combined with human error can be dangerous, and there seem to be more abandoned campfires and more people using fireworks thi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Yarnell Hill fire, which took the lives of 19 firefighters last year in Arizona, has Utah’s fire defenders talking about they can learn from the tragedy.
