A wildfire near Lake Point in Tooele County has grown to more than 1,000 acres, according to Utah fire officials.

The Green Ravine Fire was not a threat to homes as of Wednesday morning and no injuries have been reported, but communication towers on Farnworth Peak were at risk, said Jason Curry, spokesman for the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands.

No evacuations were ordered, although some residents left their homes as a precaution.

The blaze was burning through dry grass and brush, and several dozen firefighters from multiple agencies along with helicopters were on scene.

The Tribune will report further information as it becomes available.
