TOOELE, Utah -- As wildfires rage throughout Utah, a Tooele student may have found a new way to fight them.

Gavin Norman is only 13 years old, but his idea has already won him first place in a state science contest.

He came up with an idea to crush dry ice into small pieces, and dump it directly on the fire.
