(KSL News) -- A fire burning on Lake Mountain is now contained. Fire crews are still on the scene cleaning up and looking out for hot spots.

Investigators believe lightning also sparked a fire just east of Ogden today. It's not a big fire, just 15 to 20 acres.

A helicopter and plane worked the flames today. This evening, the fire is about 25 percent contained.
