A wildfire forced evacuations and was threatening a gun range east of Tooele City.

The Anaconda fire had burned more than 50 acres as of 4:30 p.m. Monday, and was being spread by shifting winds, fire officials reported. Residents on Churchwood Lane were evacuated to an LDS church at 751 North 520 East.

This is the second time in two weeks a wildfire has forced evacuations in Tooele County. Some residents of Stockton were forced out of their homes Wednesday when a wildfire damaged three homes and destroyed the roof of one of the town's water tanks.

The Tribune will report further information as it becomes available.
