Law enforcement are searching for three teenagers accused of starting the nearly 12,000-acre Turkey Farm Road Fire and think more information about a car the youths were seen in that day may offer some clues.

The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands released two images of the car on Friday, saying that “[n]ew information has been discovered relating to” the fire.

Officials have said they’re looking for a group of teenagers who were illegally shooting off fireworks in the area north of St. George on Monday.

On Friday, state fire officials reported the fire had burned 11,993 acres and was 60% contained. They said the blaze, which grew rapidly because of strong winds Monday, was now only “creeping and smoldering.”

The fire destroyed one outbuilding and no injuries were reported.
