FAYETTE -- A field fire got out of hand in Sanpete County Thursday evening near the town of Fayette.

A farmer who was burning a field lost control of the blaze, and it quickly burned 100 acres or so.

The farmer used his tractor to help cut a fire barrier, and local firefighters and a Forest Service wildlands crew helped contain the fire.

They kept it on the east side of Highway 28, and it didn't damage any structures or injure anyone. The fire did, however, burn some fences.
