Wildfire where fatal crash occurred contained
UTAH (AP) -- Crews have contained a 10-square-mile wildfire on the Utah-Nevada border where a firefighting air tanker crashed last week, killing both crew members.
And cooler weather is helping firefighters in their battle Sunday against two wildfires in southern Utah.
Officials say the lightning-caused White Rock Fire in eastern Nevada and western Utah, about 150 miles northeast of Las Vegas, was 100 percent contained Friday night after a weeklong battle.
A Lockheed P2V tanker was dropping retardant on the fire when it crashed June 3 a quarter mile inside Utah, killing pilots Todd Tompkins and Ronnie Chambless, both of Boise, Idaho.
In southern Utah, officials say calmer winds and cooler temperatures are allowing progress in battles against the 2,018-acre Box Creek Fire near Greenwich and the 2,076-acre Lost Lake Fire near Teasdale.
