WEST VALLEY CITY — A fire burned more than 30 acres of land along the Jordan River Parkway on Sunday, and officials are calling it "suspicious."

The fire started around 3:30 p.m. and charred an area between 2800 South and 3000 South, and 900 West and 1100 West, said West Valley Assistant Fire Chief Kris Romijn.

"It is suspicious," he said. "We've had some witnesses stating that they've seen somebody starting fires in this area."

A mulch used to improve the parkway caused problems for firefighters, Romijn said, but crews were able to keep flames away from power lines and structures. No injuries had been reported, as firefighters mopped up the area around 5:30 p.m.
