CENTERVILLE, Utah (AP) - Officials say they are looking for tips in a wildfire near Centerville that they believe was caused by humans.

The Ogden Standard-Examiner reports forest officials are looking for video footage of the 37- acre blaze that started about 7:45 p.m. Thursday in the foothills near Centerville.

Footage of the first 15 minutes of the fire could offer clues on how the flames got started.

Officials say no structures were damaged and no injuries were reported in the wildfire that was contained Friday. Authorities had initially issued voluntary evacuation orders for four homes in the area.

The blaze slowed when winds died down and rain started falling.
