(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The U-S Forest Service is pulling crews off a fire burning in Shepard Canyon near Farmington.

That fire started last Thursday night in thick, dense brush. It has burned 391 acres and is fully contained, though officials are not yet calling it controlled.

U-S Forest Officials say one engine is available in case of any flare-ups.

Utah Power and Light officials say a downed powerline that goes right up Shepard Canyon is responsible for igniting the blaze.

There were no injuries.
