GROUSE CREEK, Utah (AP) - Officials in extreme northwestern Utah’s Box Elder County say crews are hampered by shifting winds as they battle a wildfire.

County economic development director Mitch Zundel says multiple air tankers are helping fight the fire that has burned 1.5 square miles (3.9 sq. kilometers) near Grouse Creek.

Zundel says six structures were threatened at one time but now have been protected.

According to Zundel, the fire started Saturday, there’s no containment so far and that its cause is investigation.
