A wildfire has sprung up in Rockport, Utah and evacuations are underway. Hundreds of residents are out of their homes as the fast moving fire swells to 1,500 acres with a 5% containment. The fire started late Tuesday night and authorities believe it was sparked by lightening, so far 13 homes have been destroyed. The Red Cross Utah has set up two evacuation centers, one at the North Summit Middle School in Coalville and the other at the LDS Ward in Park City.
