Brush Fire Near Weber Canyon

A brush fire that threatened two homes near the mouth of Weber Canyon appears to be under control, reports The Salt Lake Tribune (http://bit.ly/1nbTUpr)

Firefighters from five agencies, along with the Weber County Sheriff’s Office, responded to the fire about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday. The fire was burning near where homes at the mouth of the canyon “meet nature,” said Weber County Fire Marshal Brandon Thueson, so firefighters deployed a lot of resources to protect the homes “right off the bat.”

The firefighters were able to protect the homes while they contained the fire, which was estimated to be about an acre in size. No one was hurt.
