EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — A fire broke out at a small Utah County airport Sunday afternoon.
Unified Fire Authority responded to a fire at Cedar Valley Airport, located in Eagle Mountain. UFA spokesman Ryan Love said they got the call around 12:30 p.m., and crews were able to put the fire out within about 20 minutes.
The blaze was contained to an old school bus at the airport that served as a “pilot’s lounge.”
The private airport is commonly used for powered parachutes and paragliders.
The fire’s cause is being investigated, but authorities say there was a propane tank next to the bus that could have caused it.
The airport said nobody was injured.
They also said they plan to rebuild, and a local company called Disaster Professionals has volunteered to do the cleanup for free.
