3:30 p.m.

U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Kim Osborn said Friday they are looking for two people who were last seen camping on an access road in Bountiful that are believed to be responsible for the blaze.

Firefighters continue to battle the wildfire that police say started about 1 a.m. Friday during a thunderstorm.

Evacuation orders are still in place for about 240 homes.

The fire is estimated to be between 150-300 acres (60-120 hectares). It is not contained and some roads have been closed.

No injuries have been reported.

Osborn said crews expect it will take several days to contain the fire.

UPDATE 10 AM: Evacuations in Centerville have been lifted, but evacuations in Bountiful remain in place.

Evacuation areas:

All of East Hills Drive
900 East from East HIlls Drive to 900 North
900 North from 900 East to Northern Hills Drive
All of Northern Hills Drive
Northridge Drive from Northern Hills Drive to Skyline

The evacuation centers were consolidated to the church at Main and Center streets in Bountiful.

The fire has burned more than 150 acres and destroyed three homes. Fire officials say those homes are total losses and at least eight more have been affected by the fire.
