LOGAN, Utah — A new wildfire began Sunday afternoon in Logan Canyon.

The "Card Canyon Fire" is currently estimated at four acres, burning juniper and timber in a smaller canyon within Logan Canyon, which runs from Cache Valley to Bear Lake.

State fire officials say there is "concern" for Card Canyon.

Multiple engines and helicopters have been assisting in the fight to contain the blaze.

No evacuations or closures are in place at the time of this report. The smoke and firefighting efforts are highly visible from Logan Canyon, and officials warn drivers to be careful and to not stop and watch.

The cause is under investigation.

Another fire possibly visible to Cache Valley residents was also sparked Sunday: the "Brushy Fire" on the east side of the Wellsville Mountains at only 1/4 of an acre. Helicopter crews are responding, and the cause is under investigation.
