Eagle Mountain Mayor Heather Jackson said people were being allowed back to their homes Tuesday because although flames late Monday had burned within 600 feet of some homes, "the most active fronts of the fire" were contained to the Camp Williams area.
Regarding other Utah wildfires, the:
• Pine Canyon Fire near Grouse Creek in Box Elder County has burned nearly 400 acres. There was no estimate Tuesday for when it would be fully contained.

• Pyramid Fire in Iron County, northwest of Enterprise, was fully contained Tuesday afternoon after burning 51 acres. The fire was sparked by lightning Sunday afternoon.
• West Mountain Fire in Washington County had burned near 2,500 acres but was 75 percent contained. Crews continued to monitor flames that had earlier threatened radio towers, but no evacuations had been ordered and no injuries were reported.
