After an investigation fire officials have determined the cause of the Deer Creek fire.

The Deer Creek fire started on Wednesday July 11, when sparks from a Heber Valley train caused flames to race up the hillside near the Deer Creek dam and burn 381 acres. A heavy rainstorm stopped the progress of the flames just a few hours later. Fire officials worked to put the flames out a few days later on the 16th.

KPCW spoke with Mark Nelson the executive director with Heber Valley Railroad. Nelson said the flames were a result of a ‘perfect storm’ of bad conditions.
