SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Officials say improved weather conditions have allowed crews to make major progress in their battles against a string of wildfires in Utah.
They say cooler temperatures and rain have helped them gain the upper hand on the state's largest active wildfire. The 108,132-acre Clay Springs Fire in Millard and Juab counties was 85 percent contained Sunday.
About 400 firefighters continue to battle the blaze that's burning in steep, rocky terrain.
Its cause remains under investigation, and it has cost an estimated $5.9 million to fight it since it broke out June 27.
In Carbon County, the lightning-caused 48,397-acre Seeley Fire near Huntington was 47 percent contained Sunday.
Officials say fire activity remains low after about 0.25 inches of rain fell on the blaze Saturday.
