SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities have lifted an evacuation order for a condominium complex near Jordanelle Reservoir after a wildfire in the area.

State officials say about 100 people were told to leave the vacation complex Monday afternoon. They were allowed back about two hours later, after crews got the fire under control.

Mike Eriksson with the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands says it torched about an acre.

The cause of the fire is unclear, but investigators are looking at whether power lines crossed in the high winds.

Jordanelle Reservoir is about 40 miles east of Salt Lake City.
