Cool overnight temperatures have helped southern Utah fire crews get a better handle on a wildfire burning in southern Utah.
By about 5 p.m. Sunday, the Washington County fire was about 80 percent contained, officials with the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands reported. The fire started about 2:15 p.m. Saturday when someone lost control of a campfire about five miles north of Virgin in the Smith Mesa area.
By Sunday morning it had consumed about 123 acres, but burned around two cabins and a camp trailer on private land. Two other cabins were threatened, but no damage had been reported to structures.
