Firefighters set containment goal for blaze near Brian Head

Posted: Updated:

BRIAN HEAD, Utah (AP) - Firefighters were hoping to have a blaze near a southwestern Utah ski town 10 percent contained by Sunday.

The fire near Brian Head has destroyed one building and damaged another. It grew to about 1.5 square miles (2.4 square kilometers) Sunday.

Some 750 residents and visitors have been evacuated. No injuries have been reported.

Fire officials tell Fox 13 in Salt Lake City that they hoped the fire was 10 percent contained by the end of Sunday. About 115 firefighters were fighting the blaze.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued flight restrictions around the fire Saturday for all but firefighting aircraft.

Two other fires were burning Sunday in Utah, one in Uintah County and one in Piute County.

Cedar Breaks National Monument remained open Sunday.
