A Fire Weather Watch is in effect for some areas in Colorado.

Almost 1,000 firefighters battled a Utah wildfire that grew Sunday morning to almost 67 square miles (174 square kilometers) and has prompted the evacuation of 1,500 people from hundreds of homes and cabins.

Officials say the fire now covers almost 67 square miles and has destroyed more than a dozen homes since it was sparked a week ago. In Utah, more than a thousand firefighters are still struggling to contain a huge fire that started on June 17 near Brian Head, a ski town.

Crews in California, meanwhile, are allowing people back into their homes near Santa Clarita.

A number of communities in the area were forced to evacuate, including the entire town of Brian Head.
