TOOELE COUNTY -- A wildfire in Tooele County caused some major problems Saturday afternoon.

The blaze forced the closure of all traffic in and out of South Willow Canyon, just west of Grantsville. Police say several cabins in the canyon were threatened.

Firefighters battled the flames from the ground and the sky. Helicopters dropped water as crews cleared debris.

The fire was small -- just four acres-- and was under control as of 5 p.m.

Firefighters are still trying to determine what caused it.
