The fire was located about four miles north of Big Park, which is about 35 miles southeast of Vernal and about 10 miles west of the Colorado border.

Dirk Huber, assistant manager for the Uintah Basin Fire Center said no structures were at risk, but oil and gas recovery infrastructure was threatened.

The fire is burning quickly through dry grass and sage. Huber said the fire had "extremely high spread potential."

He said the presumed cause was lightening.Jessica Miller
