CEDAR FORT, Utah (AP) -- Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a brush fire that burned dangerously close to homes in a Utah County subdivision.

No one was hurt or evacuated after the fire broke out about 10 p.m. Sunday in a field of sage brush and juniper near the White Hills subdivision. Firefighters from Cedar Fort, Lehi, Utah County, Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs helped put out the flames.

The fire came within about 100 yards of homes in the subdivision and firefighters positioned themselves in front of homes to defend the area.

The fire burned only about 10 to 15 acres before it was doused.

The cause is under investigation, but fire officials said it looks suspicious.
