    SALT LAKE CITY — A large grass fire and several “spot fires” that forced the closure of I-80 in western Salt Lake City on Tuesday have been contained, according to Salt Lake City Fire officials.

  • Uniquely Utah: The ‘Moon Tree’

    SALT LAKE CITY — A tree in Utah has been to the moon and back — literally. At first glance, it’s just a tree — a sycamore, to be precise. But it also has another name: The Moon Tree. In 1971, one man aboard the Apollo 14 brought a collection of tree seeds with him, then gave them to the U.S. Forest Service when they returned. They sent the seedlings all over the country to be planted. About 80 still […]

  • Uniquely Utah: The Great Salt Lake’s long-forgotten pumping station

In this installment of Uniquley Utah, Fox 13’s Todd Tanner takes us to the pumping station that hasn’t been used in years. Check it out in the video player above!

  • Utah woman comes home from work and almost doesn’t recognize her own house

    MAGNA, Utah — Lori Bell was at work with no idea her old, collapsed driveway was being ripped out and replaced. A new front lawn was also going in, and all the work was complete by the time she arrived home. Lori was nominated for a surprise from the Fox 13 Dream Team by her sister Jolene. Lori essentially raised Jolene after the death of their mother, when the two girls were just 15 and 5. Their father was a […]

  • ‘He was my best friend’: Utah County K9 honored at memorial service

    SPANISH FORK, Utah — A memorial service was held Monday for one of the Utah County Sheriff’s Office K9 officers. The dog, named “Havoc,” died July 16 after unexpectedly running away from his handler and into the road, where he was hit by a car. Careers are often defined in numbers, and when it comes to police careers, Havoc had some pretty impressive stats. He went on 245 deployments, had 96 narcotics finds, and has assisted in nine suspect deployments where […]

  • Uniquely Utah: Historic couple shows gender dynamic in the world of art

    SALT LAKE CITY — When you think of famous artists, a few names probably come to mind, like Michelangelo and Van Gogh. Aside from being great artists, they have another thing in common: most of the masters were men.

  • ‘Deadliest Days’ becoming safer; officials warn against drunk driving on 24th

    SALT LAKE CITY — We are right in the middle of “The 100 Deadliest Days” on Utah roads, but efforts to make them the 100 “safest” days may be paying off. The campaign by Utah Highway Patrol and Utah Department of Transportation makes an effort to reduce collisions and fatalities between Memorial Day and Labor Day — statistically the most dangerous time period on the road. At this point during the “deadliest days” of last summer, there had been 103 […]

  • Uniquely Utah: Going bat-watching

    LAYTON, Utah — If you haven’t been out to the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve in Davis County, you’re missing out on some great birdwatching — and, once a year, bat-watching, too. At The Nature Conservancy’s preserve here in Utah, looking for flying creatures in the dark is quite a challenge, but it happens. It’s a place to observe hundreds of species of migratory birds. It’s free to visit year-round and closes each night at sunset. They have a mile […]

  • Uniquely Utah: The final days of Winder Dairy delivery

    A Utah tradition of 139 years has come to an end — Winder Dairy no longer delivers milk. Delivery services from grocery stores and online providers have essentially outmaneuvered Winder’s longstanding delivery system. They’re faster, and sometimes cheaper, but they can’t replace the connections that used to be made between farmers, distributors and customers. In this installment of Uniquely Utah, we give you a last look at the way many Utahns used to get their dairy.
