Even as authorities gained control of two fires, a new wildfire, this one sparked by lightning, was burning out of control Sunday in southern Utah.
The newest blaze named the OMG fire ignited on Shivwits Indian Reservation land and federal lands, west of St. George. The fire started Friday near the old OMG Plant, a gold mining mill near Old Highway 91, fire officials said. As of Sunday evening, it had burned about 1,900 acres and was about 20 percent contained.
There were no injuries or evacuations, and firefighters reported they had stopped the fire's forward progression. However, officials warned that Old Highway 91 might be closed briefly as necessary.
