Gene Kennedy ReportingFirefighters have contained a grass fire burning in the hills above Ogden today. Witnesses first noticed the smoke around 6 a.m.

The blaze has scorched about 15 acres in a small canyon above 21st Street. The wind is kicking up the smoke and blowing it up the mountain so it isn't threatening any homes. One viewer told us they could see the smoke from Harrisville.

Sixty firefighters from several departments have been battling the blaze and have dug fire lines to keep flames from spreading. They're still watching to make sure hot spots don't flare up. Firefighters expect to get the fire under control by 10:00 a.m.

Investigators believe the wildfire was started by an abandoned camp fire.
