The Anaconda Fire had burned 1,100 acres in Pine Canyon, east of Tooele. It was sparked by lightning on Sunday and had been thought all-but-tamed until winds kicked up flames Monday afternoon. Crews had the blaze 25 percent contained on Tuesday night; Fire Information Officer Ryan Wilden said it appeared the d...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

And as Utah heats up, residents need to think about more than just ways to cool down — risks from wildfire, air pollution and wider use of lakes, reservoirs and rivers also increase. Hot and dry conditions combined with human error can be dangerous, and there seem to be more abandoned campfires and more people using fireworks thi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
