(KSL News) -- Fire crews have contained a wildfire that scorched 20 acres in Herriman.
The fire broke out just before five yesterday afternoon, and quickly moved along Rose Canyon. No homes were evacuated.
Because of the threat of high winds, firefighters kept a close eye on the blaze, and put several families on stand by.
Jay Ziolkowski, Unified Fire Authority: "If the winds do come and start pushing the fire to the southwest, those homes are in harms way so our fire crews are working on a fire line.. Trying to clear the break in case something happens."
Fortunately, the winds were mild overnight, giving firefighters a chance to contain the blaze. Still, crews will be monitoring the fire throughout the day.
Lightning is believed to have sparked the fire.
