Small Utah Plane Crash That Killed 2 Sparks Wildfire

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A small plane crash that killed two people has also sparked a wildfire west of Salt Lake City.

The blaze south of Grantsville had torched less than one square mile as of Sunday morning, according to state fire officials.

The crash happened Thursday night, when a small plane went down in Tooele County, near Rush Valley. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the Piper PA-28-140 to crash.

The National Transportation Safety Board says two people died. Their identities were not immediately released.
