LAS VEGAS — Rain helped firefighters increase containment of several wildfires covering a combined 33 square miles in remote rangeland in eastern Nevada and southwestern Utah.

No homes or other structures were threatened by the 9,100-acre Lages (log-EES') Fire which was nearing containment about 60 miles north of Ely, Nevada — or from a trio of fires northeast and southeast of Panaca, Nevada, and southwest of Enterprise Reservoir in Utah.

BLM spokeswoman Jesse Bender says firefighters were pulled from a trio of lightning-sparked fires dubbed the MCG Complex before heavy rain set in Monday.

She reports 60 percent containment of the approximately 10,300-acre Middle Ridge Fire, 80 percent containment of the 1,127-acre Cottonwood Fire and 95 percent contrainment of the 761-acre Greek Peak Fire in Utah.
