USA —  More than 200 people turned out to talk about recovery and to thank emergency crews who stopped a wildfire sparked on a Utah Army National Guard base from devastating more of the Salt Lake City-area community of Herriman.

Some people at the Thursday night meeting at Herriman High School sought information about damage claims and reimbursements.

Others complained about the length of evacuations of some 5,000 people from more than 1,600 homes.

A Natural Resources Conservation Services official said Herriman will receive $440,000 in emergency aid to restore watershed and protect against mud slides this winter.

The wildfire was sparked Sept. 19 at Camp Williams.

It destroyed three homes, damaged a fourth and blackened some 6 square miles in and near Herriman before it was contained five days later.
