The Rockport Fire forced hundreds of people out of their homes Tuesday afternoon as it ravaged through the dry brush. As KPCW's Leslie Thatcher reports, several structures and vehicles were lost, but no injuries have been reported.

Firefighters battled the Rockport fire overnight and calm conditions this morning allowed crews to work on hot spots. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has this update.

When Melanie Bosworth heard news about the Rockport fire, as a North Summit Relief Society President for the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she kicked into gear.

American Red Cross shelters in Coalville and Park City - established Tuesday as refuge for evacuees forced from  their homes by the Rockport wildfire - will remain open until at least 6 PM Wednesday. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.


Listeners from around the county shared their photos of the Rockport Estate fire with KPCW through email, text messages and social media. The slide show above shows some of the ones we received by Tuesday night.
