(KSL News) A fire continues to tear through parts of Juab County this morning.

The Salt Creek Fire near Levan has charred 15 hundred acres, and is 20 percent contained.

Crews say the blaze has grown in the last two days and recent hot, dry weather has increased fire danger.

Karen Feary/ Fire Information Officer: "With this drying trend we've had, especially for the next week, everything is really dry, especially high elevation grasses. So if we are going to get a fire now, it would potentially be a larger fire."

Close to 100 firefighters are battling the flames. More are expected to come to Levan sometime today.

Authorities say the fire may be fully contained in the next few days.
