Drive. One engine from the Clark County Fire Department responded at 2:35 p.m., along with crews from the Bureau of Land Management, the Forest Service and the Beaver Dam Fire Department. Several units were delayed because of construction on Interstate-15.

The flames were knocked down at 5:39 p.m., according to battalion chief John Steinbeck. No injuries resulted from the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
