The man accused of starting a fire in southern Utah that burned more than 70-thousand-acres will face a preliminary hearing in October.  Robert Lyman made a brief court appearance in Cedar City yesterday.  He’s charged with reckless burning and failing to notify authorities about actions that led to the Brian Head Fire, which started in June and burned for nearly a month.  Lyman’s attorney said that the charges “lack factual foundation” and said some statements made about how the fire started are not true.
