MORONI -- Fire officials said Wednesday that a central Utah wildfire has destroyed at least 56 structures, the majority of which are homes.
Authorities are only halfway through their damage assessment as the blaze continues to burn, said interagency fire spokeswoman Dorothy Harvey.
The Wood Hollow Fire in Sanpete County has grown to more than 46,000 acres, or 72 square miles, after strong winds whipped the flames Tuesday afternoon. The blaze also led to minor injuries for two firefighters on scene, officials said.
The fire is the largest of several burning in Utah. Officials are keeping a portion of U.S. 89 closed Wednesday morning and are reassessing whether to let evacuated residents of Fairview return to their homes.
Authorities say they're still concerned about winds picking up around midday, which could frustrate the firefighting effort.
Sanpete County sheriff's officials say they have a tentative identification on a body they found Tuesday morning, but are waiting for confirmation from a medical examiner.
Elsewhere in the state, officials said the Seeley Fire is not at all contained and has forced evacuations in Clear Creek, Hiawatha and Scofield.
And the Church Camp fire has already burned structures about 22 miles outside Duchesne.
