Firefighters, with help from the air, are continuing to battle a wildfire on Dugway Proving Ground.
As of Sunday morning, firefighters contained 30 percent of the blaze, dubbed the Rough Haul Fire, which has been burning northeast of the U.S. Army military facility since about 3 p.m. Saturday. Hot spots burned overnight as fire managers and Dugway personnel strategized how to contain the wildfire.
"The cause of the fire has not been established but is believed to be human-caused," according to a news release.
By Sunday evening, the fire had burned about 5,000 acres.
Dozens of firefighters and officials were on-hand, but unexploded ordnance in the area limited where they can go. In light of that, two helicopters were brought in Saturday to help — and on Sunday morning, two Utah National Guard Blackhawk helicopters, that are outfitted for aerial firefighting, also arrived to help contain the Rough Haul Fire.
"These 60 firefighters along with several engines and four helicopters are expected to make significant progress toward containment today," according to the release.
The fire is not threatening any structures, no evacuations are in place and no injuries have been reported.
