Four fire crews continue to work a wildfire in Box Elder County near the Idaho border.

The Northern Utah Interagency Fire Center said Sunday that 240 fire fighters are on the scene and continuing to work to protect structures in the area. The State Fire, which has burned about 11,000 acres, is 38 percent contained, said spokeswoman Jennifer Hansen. So far, there are no reports of damaged structures or injuries.

The fire, burning west of Portage, started on Thursday. Hansen said investigators have determined that lightning started the wildfire.
