Crews Saturday were mopping up the embers in a 600-acre fire near Causey Reservior while a 580-acre blaze near St. George was declared out.
Arson is suspected in the fire on Utah Hill, about 20 miles northwest of St. George, which began about 4 p.m. Wednesday in pinon and sagebrush. It was contained Friday."Containment is classed as putting a line around the fire. Control is when you figure the fire has no way of escaping," said dispatcher Wayne Hunt.
A second 50-acre fire was burning about 40 miles northwest of Cedar City, Hunt said, and is expected to be contained Sunday.
The lightning-caused fire on Deseret Land and Livestock Co. property charred aspen and brush about 30 miles east of Ogden before containment Friday.
