SALT LAKE CITY — Firefighters battled steep and often inaccessible terrain Monday to try and contain the Goose Creek Fire in Box Elder County.

Nevada's China Jim Fire and the Goose Creek Fire combined Sunday evening, forming a single massive fire (now referred to as the Goose Creek Fire) that was measured at about 118,000 acres Monday afternoon.

At the same time, crews in Summit County worked tirelessly to slow the newly sparked Tollgate Fire. By Monday evening, the blaze had consumed 287 acres, fire officials said.

Take a look below to see the latest updates on these and other wildfires burning across the state.
