A fire broke out Wednesday at 2500 E Waters Edge, which is just south of the Virgin River, on Mall Dr Tuesday.

The wind is gusting up a bit more this afternoon which is aiding the fire plus there is a large amount of available fire fuel.  

It has also not been reported if any structures or houses have been in the fire path or if any of the local places will need to evacuate.
