The fire started a little before 5 p.m. Monday. Firefighters haven’t determined a cause, but no homes or buildings were threatened and no one was injured.

The fire continues to burn in grass, sage, and juniper within the containment lines. It is expected to burn itself out.

Multiple agencies battled the blaze, including the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, South Fremont Fire District and North Fremont Fire District. Crews have been using ground and air resources to put it out.
