(KSL News) The Porcupine Ranch fire burning near Moab is now 85 percent contained.

Rain on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon helped crews fighting the fire, which has burned about 4,200 acres. One edge of the fire remains uncontained. It is along the steep ridgelines between Horse Mountain and Grand View Peak.

All roads and recreational trails in the area are open, including the LaSal Loop Road.

One hand crew and two engines will continue working on the fire until it is completely containment, which is expected by Monday, Sept. 8.
