MORE THAN FIFTY FIREFIGHTERS -- FROM THREE AGENCIES -- RESPONDED TO A GRASS BLAZE, OUTSIDE MAGNA, EARLY THURSDAY MORNING.

OFFICIALS SAY THE FIRE GREW TO ABOUT 15 ACRES, BEFORE BEING CONTAINED.

UNIFIED FIRE BATTALION CHIEF BRIAN ANDERTON SAYS, THEY HAD PLENTY OF MANPOWER... BUT WATER HAD TO BE TRUCKED IN.

WEST VALLEY AND SALT LAKE CREWS ASSISTED UNIFIED FIRE ON THE BLAZE, NEAR KENNECOTT PROPERTY.

COOLER TEMPERATURES AND LIGHT WIND ALSO HELPED.

FIRE OFFICIALS SAY THE BURNING GRASS WAS STILL GREEN... AND CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO ONLY GET WORSE -- OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS -- AS THOSE GRASSES DRY OUT, ACROSS THE STATE.
