WASHINGTON COUNTY (ABC4 News) – State fire officials say crews are fighting a human-caused fire that is threatening several structures Thursday night.

The “Spirit Fire” is burning an estimated 10 acres along the west side of Interstate 15 near Pintura.

Officials said two homes and three outbuildings are threatened, and the fire is 0 percent contained.

Firefighting efforts were hampered by poor access and rocky terrain, officials said.
