Wildfires in Utah contained, but fire danger remains high

Major wildfires in the state are now contained but the danger is not over.

As many as 600 wildfires have started in Utah this fire season. But as of Friday morning officials said the latest big wildfire, the Baboon Fire in southern Utah, is now 100 percent contained.

But even though Utah has received some moisture, fire officials say the threat of wildfire is still great and conditions are prime.
