Though a new wildfire flared up in Utah County Saturday, most of the state's larger blazes are winding down.
Saturday morning fireworks started the Spring Canyon Fire, which reached 140 acres as it retreated up the canyon near Springville. Crews contained 15 percent of the fire, burning in grass and oak brush, by Saturday evening.
Firefighters also spent Saturday wrangling the Rockport Fire, which began in a yurt near the Summit County neighborhood of Rockport Estates Friday afternoon. The fire spread toward a nearby landfill, growing to about 120 acres. Firefighters reached 95 percent containment by Saturday evening, and expected to return and check for hot spots on Sunday, said Tyler Rowser, spokesman for the North Summit Fire District.
