SOUTH JORDAN — Six homes and three sheds were damaged in a fire that began just after 4 p.m. near the Glenmoor Golf Course, officials said.

South Jordan battalion chief Andrew Butler said the cause of the fire is still under investigation, but cotton droppings from cottonwood and poplar trees may have caught fire and contributed to the growth of the blaze.

Approximately 20 homes were evacuated. Many homeowners used their own hoses to fight the blaze, including three individuals who received minor injuries.
