Lighters and fireworks were to blame for two grass fires that burned 3 acres in Ogden this week.

The first fire was sparked just after 3 p.m. Monday near 2450 James Brown Drive, which is located at Fort Buenaventura. Ogden fire officials said the blaze was started by two boys playing with a lighter. The fire was contained to a half acre, officials said. One firefighter suffered a broken arm from a fall while fighting the fire. Officials say this was the third fire in that area this year.
