A blaze broke out July 12 at Holcim Cement Plant when a semi was pumping fuel into an auxiliary building.  No one was injured, and only the 32-foot semi trailer and parts of the auxiliary building were damaged.  It took Morgan and South Ogden fire crews two hours to extinguish the flames.  
On July 11, an arcing transformer near 730 N. Morgan Valley Drive caused a 1.5 acre mountainside grass fire.  Fire crews from Morgan, Mountain Green and the state Forest Service 
extinguished the fire in an hour without evacuating homes.
