Crews near to dousing Flood Canyon fire near Tooele

First Published Jun 10 2013 08:47 am • Last Updated Jun 10 2013 04:38 pm

Firefighters contained a 66-acre wildfire in Tooele County’s Flood Canyon Monday afternoon.

Bureau of Land Management spokesman L.J. Brown said the blaze, spotted about 4:30 p.m. Sunday, was being mopped up by some 35 firefighters.

The cause of the fire, which burned in mostly oak brush and grass and did not threaten any structures, remained under investigation — though crews did discover a downed power line near where the blaze was thought to have begun.

Hand crews, assisted by two engines, were focusing on smoldering hot spots inside the fire’s perimeter as they worked to douse the last embers of the blaze, Brown said.

The BLM declared that the fire was fully contained by 1 p.m.

A lightning-sparked fire in Flood Canyon last summer burned 720 acres before being extinguished.
