SEVIER COUNTY — Firefighters continue to battle the Glen-Anna Wildfire in Sevier County Thursday and are expecting full containment.

So far, the fire burning near Richfield, Utah has charred more than 1,500 acres since it began Tuesday at Bull Claim Hill. Crews have it 90 percent contained.

Crews continue to use air tankers to mop up the fire burning in steep and rocky terrain.

Authorities have no word how it started, but expect to have full containment by Thursday afternoon.
