ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- The Jones Fire burning in Washington County is now up to more than 700-acres.
The fire was sparked Saturday by lightning.
Bureau of Land Management officials say erratic winds hampered firefighters' efforts yesterday. But today, about 150-firefighters assisted by choppers and air tankers will continue to secure the fire's perimeter.
The Oak Grove Campground nearby was evacuated Saturday because there's only one road in and out of the area. Today the campground remains closed.
Fire officials hope to contain the fire by Wednesday.
