A brush fire burning near mile post 12 on state Route 18 across from Diamond Valley partially closed the highway Sunday evening and had burned more than 80 acres.

The Volcano Fire had largely been burning through brush and short grass near Diamond Valley just above the north entrance of Snow Canyon State Park.

According to a Twitter post from the Utah Department of Transportation, the fire had caused the closure of at least one lane of the highway. High winds proved difficult for emergency personnel that responded to the fire.
