(KSL News) -- Two fires are keeping fire fighters busy this afternoon.

A wildfire started late this afternoon west of Utah Lake. The flames consumed about 400 acres of brush on Lake Mountain. It's burning away from nearby structures and nothing appears to be threatened right now.

Officials believe it was human caused. It's too early to tell when crews will have it contained.

Firefighters also responded this afternoon to the Brickyard Condominium complex.

The most serious damage is confined to one second floor unit. For a while, though, the flames were pretty intense, rolling around a multi-level roof and a chimney.

There will undoubtedly be smoke and water damage in adjoining units, and possibly some fire damage as well. They're estimating the damages so far to be at least $100,000.
