CEDAR MOUNTAINS FIRE BURNING OUT OF CONTROL

A 6,000-acre fire in Tooele County's Cedar Mountains continued to burn out of control Monday.

The fire was reported Sunday about 2 p.m. near Hastings Pass, 55 miles west of Salt Lake City and six miles south of the Low interchange on I-80. Interagency Fire Centers spokeswoman Vi Hillman said the fire is burning in a wilderness study area and is threatening wild horse habitat.Rugged terrain made it difficult for firefighters to get to the fire, which was battled from the air Sunday by a helicopter and an aerial tanker. The cause of the fire was still under investigation Monday.
