OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Fire officials are classifying as suspicious a fire that burned across 4,000 acres in western Weber County.

Weber County Fire Warden Dave Vickers says Saturday's Pintail Flat Fire on the western edge of the Ogden Bay Waterfowl Managed Area was miles from the site of a prescribed burn earlier in the week.There was also no lightning in the area at the time the fire started.

Investigators with the state Division of Forestry are looking into the cause of the fire, which took most of Saturday night to get under control.
