Fire crews from Corinne, Garland and Fielding responded to a lightning-cause fire on the south end of Promontory Saturday, which burned just over 20 acres of private grazing ground across from the Great Salt Lake causeway.

Box Elder County Fire Marshal Greg Martz said the fire, which burned sage and juniper, was reported about 4 p.m., and was considered contained and controlled by Monday morning.

Just one hour later, at 5 p.m., a second, smaller fire above Deweyville was reported.  The one-acre burn was on Forest Service property.
