Utah Firefighters Fear More Wildfires Will Break Out Over July 4th Weekend

Just as wildland firefighters began gaining the upper hand on Utah blazes, another one was reported Tuesday night near Minersville, in Beaver County.

The latest lightning-cause fire had consumed 750 acres and was threatening one cabin.

Firefighters are concerned, the combination of tinder dry conditions, extreme heat and fireworks could lead to many new fires, over the holiday weekend.
