WEBER COUNTY, Utah — Wet ground and access issued caused fire crews in Weber County to battle a brush fire for several hours Tuesday afternoon.

According to Batallion Chief Mark Lund with Weber County Fire, an illegal burn got out of control at around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, and grew to 4.37 acres.

Two units from Hill Air Force Base and six units from Weber County Fire worked to get the blaze under control.
