Utah authorities are investigating whether a brush fire that destroyed at least 10 mobile homes was intentionally set. The 30-acre fire in the northern Utah city of Tooele ripped through a trailer park overnight after high winds pushed it out of a field and into a neighborhood. Tooele fire and police officials said Wednesday that the blaze appeared suspicious and investigators were trying to determine if it was arson. The fire has been contained but has displaced several dozen people. Eight other homes and a handful of cars were damaged.
