LAYTON – Officials say a fire burned at the mouth of Adams Canyon early Friday afternoon in the eastern hills above Layton.

Layton Fire spokesman Doug Bitton said the department received numerous 9-11 calls from drivers who saw smoke in the area near Oak Hills Drive and Highway 89.

Bitton said a pavement crew was burning weeds from cracks in a driveway at 3050 E. Canyon Creek Circle when the flames got away and into some nearby grass and scrub oak.

According to Bitton, crews responded quickly, using 4 fire engines, 3 brush truck and 2 ambulances.

The fire one-quarter acre fire was knocked down before it could spread or threaten any homes or structures, he said.

A “cold trial” crew was assigned to stick around long after the fire was extinguished to make sure the blaze did not re-ignite, said Bitton.

 The Davis County fire warden also responded to the scene.

The small fire is a reminder of the dry conditions and extreme danger at this time of year.

“There is a red flag warning,” said Bitton. “We need people to awfully, awfully cautious.”

Bitton added that the nearby Adams Canyon trail remained open during the operation.
