A wildfire that burned more than 1,500 acres of land near the Great Salt Lake has been contained.

The Pintail Flats fire started Saturday afternoon and burned between 1,500 and 1,800 acres of land on the western edge of Ogden Bay, according to a statement from the Division of Wildlife Resources.

Firefighters had contained the blaze by about 3:30 a.m. on Sunday.

The high winds that fueled the flames continued to blow Sunday afternoon, and firefighters were still monitoring for potential flare-ups.

The cause of the fire is unknown but is being called suspicious.
