ST. GEORGE — A brush fire exploded with great fury Wednesday in the area of North Roadrunner Drive and North Falcon Drive in St. George.

The fire, which spread through a wash in the Paradise Canyon Subdivision off Snow Canyon Parkway, was reportedly caused by sparks from a cutting tool being used by a construction crew, St. George Fire Chief Robert Stoker said.

The blaze started at approximately 3 p.m. Firefighters appeared to have the fire contained by 4 p.m.

At least one home has sustained possible damages of around $5,000.
