A fire that began Sunday night has consumed 1,800 acres so far on a hillside north of Tremonton.
According to Box Elder County officials, as of approximately 1:30 p.m on Monday the fire has been 20% contained, and no structures are threatened at this time.
The "Radio Hill Fire," as it's being called, is believed to have been started by a lightning strike. Local, state and federal resources are on scene battling the blaze, including two helicopters.
County fire officials are asking the public to stay out of the area, and to keep drones away from the airspace around the fire so that ground and air crews can operate safely.
No plans for any evacuations have been made.
