Photo by Kirk Hoth LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Fire crews have made good progress on fires burning in Cache County and evacuations were lifted and power was restored this morning.

About eight homes were evacuated and several others were threatened after four fires broke out and merged in to two blazes yesterday evening.

The fires also knocked out power to more than 8,300 customers.

Logan City Fire Chief Mark Meaker says containment has been reached on the west side of the fire and that should protect homes.

He says evacuations should be lifted and good progress was being made on the fires.

Power also was restored to customers of Rocky Mountain Power early this morning.
