Fire crews were able to quickly contain the blaze, which officials believe was started by a lightning strike. A fire ban remains in effect across southeastern Utah due to extremely hot, dry and windy conditions, according to the BLM’s Jason Kirks. No campfires are permitted except in official fire pits. No smoking outdoors is allowed on public lands. There is a ban on metal cutting, fireworks, certain firearms and exploding targets on public lands.
