I haven't heard any helicopters in a couple hours and at last word 75% of it had been contained. It's about two acres in size. It started on a Bonneville power line tract about a mile from Lake Limerick. So far no homes are in immediate danger.

An update would be nice. Is it still burning? Is it contained?

We live out here at Lake Limerick and are just waiting for some news..... though it's a few miles south of us and on the other side of the street there are a lot of homes out here and a LOT of dry brush and trees....
