Crews expected to soon complete containment lines around a southern Utah blaze that had scorched nearly 2,500 acres of cheat grass, brush, pinyon and juniper trees.
The Roundabout Wildfire, which began Monday in the Horse Valley area 20 miles northwest of Cedar City, was 75 percent contained as of late Thursday afternoon. Fire Information Officer Mike Melton said full containment was expected by late Thursday evening or Friday morning.
"Things are going pretty well today," Melton said. "If they don't get it done [contained] tonight, they will tomorrow."
