The blaze broke out Sunday around 5 p-m and was contained last night around 8 p-m.

Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman Erin Darboven says crews were pulled off the blaze last night, but a few hand crews will be sent in this morning to mop up hot spots.

B-L-M officials say the fire burning about 40-miles west of Salt Lake City was started by a bottle rocket, but they have no suspects.
