CAMP WILLIAMS, Utah (AP) — Utah National Guard officials say crews are battling a wildfire that sparked near a gun range at Camp Williams.
They say the fire was first reported about 11 a.m. Sunday and charred about 100 acres (0.15 square miles or 0.38 square kilometers) by 2:15 p.m. and was 25% contained.
National Guard officials say the wildfire began near the camp’s .50-caliber gun range during a training exercise and fire danger was deemed low at the time of the training.
Two helicopters, 20 ground vehicles, and 60 guard personnel were deployed to the scene of the fire, which is burning in the foothills north of Eagle Mountain.
