Scott G. Winterton, Deseret News
Fires rage in Utah, and firefighters work to save lives and homes from the blazes. But it comes as at a cost. The following is a ranking of the biggest fires in Utah history based on how much money it took to suppress the fire. The data comes from the Bureau of Land Management. Suppression costs for the Late fire, which occurred in Juab County on Aug 15, 2002, were unavailable. The 354 acre fire was excluded from the list due to the unavailable data.
