PROVO -- Officials say they'll be sealing a 1,200 foot deep mine shaft where several Brigham Young University students were burned earlier this month playing with homemade gasoline bombs.
Al McKee of Ophir Minerals & Aggregate Group tells the Daily Herald of Provo his company plans to start collapsing and burying the hole this week.
McKee says the site is now under 24-hour surveillance.
Six college students were treated for burns after they reportedly spilled a cooler of fuel into the abandoned mine shaft July 16 and it caught fire.
The shaft is in a remote area of Utah about 80 miles south of Salt Lake City.
