South Randlett Fire

Rain didn’t stop the growth of the “South Randlett Fire” into Thursday. According to the BIA Forestry & Wildland Fire - Uintah and Ouray Agency, the South Randlett Fire was active and grew to 4 acres before being controlled by fire personnel. It’s suspected the fire was started by lightning on Tuesday night and it is burning in heavy brush, grass and cottonwood trees. Crews from the BIA, Avalon Fire, LaPoint-Tridell Fire and State Lands Forestry & Fire battled the blaze and were able to contain it as of Thursday night. The BIA agency gave a big thanks to all crews and people involved in this success. This is one of many fires battled in the Basin in the last few weeks.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
