LAS VEGAS (AP) — Firefighters are reporting gains containing several wildfires that, combined, cover more than 33 square miles in remote parts of eastern Nevada and southwestern Utah.
No homes or other structures were threatened Monday. Two firefighters have been treated for dehydration.
Smoke closed U.S. Highway 93 after the 9,100-acre Lages Fire was discovered last Wednesday, but a federal Bureau of Land Management spokesman says the fire is about 75 percent contained.
A fire spokeswoman says rain helped about 470 firefighters battling three fires dubbed the MCG Complex, including the 10,300-acre Middle Ridge fire northeast of the Nevada community of Panaca and the 1,200-acre Cottonwood fire southeast of Panaca.
They're being managed in conjunction with the 761-acre Greek Peak fire about 15 miles southwest of Enterprise Reservoir in Utah.
