First Published Oct 01 2012 07:48 pm • Last Updated Oct 01 2012 10:55 pm

Firefighters braced for difficult weather conditions as a wildfire burned about 100 acres near Cedar City on Monday evening.

The Roundabout Fire was reported 4:20 p.m. Monday about 20 miles northwest of Cedar City, according to a press statement by state fire officials. Crews reached the fire about two hours later but left at dark because the terrain is too dangerous for nighttime work.
